9783540000068: Efficient Conservation Of Crop Genetic Diversity: Theoretical Approaches And Empirical Studies

The book reflects the work in progress regarding the analysis of the costs of crop genetic resources conservation that has been conducted at various research insti­ tutes over the last couple of years, including research conducted at ZEF and asso­ ciated institutes. In addition, contributions in this publication were presented at a special session during the "Global Dialogue: The Role of the Village in the 2]'1 Century: Crops, Jobs and Livelihood" in Hannover, Germany, at the World Exposition in Au­ gust 2000. The purpose of the publication is to make a general contribution to the ongoing discussion about the conservation of crop genetic resources as part of the global strategy to secure increasing food production in a sustainable way. Specifically, it discusses the costs of the worldwide efforts to conserve crop genetic resources on the basis of theoretical and applied studies. It aims to serve decision-makers at dif­ ferent levels with information on the costs involved in the conservation of genetic resources and hence to increase the awareness of the importance of improving the cost effectiveness of different conservation methods in order to optimize the sus­ tainability of conservation. The quoted Leipzig Declaration, which was adopted at the Fourth International Technical Conference on Plant Genetic Resources in Leipzig in June 1996, dem­ onstrates the close linkage of the contributions to the ongoing discussion about the implementation of the Global Plan of Actionfor the Conservation and Sustainable Utili­ zation of Plant Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture.

From the Back Cover:

 

The conservation of crop genetic resources is one of the important components in the effort to increase agricultural production in low-income countries in a sustainable manner and to guarantee long-term food security, especially for the low-income population groups in these countries. Without sufficient financial resources secured for the long term at national and international levels, the will to conserve crop genetic resources as expressed by all governments will only be paying lip service to the issue, thus threatening all conservation efforts. The articles in this publication contribute to the ongoing discussion about the costs of worldwide efforts to conserve crop genetic resources on the basis of theoretical and applied studies. Based on case studies in Columbia, India, Kenya and two genebanks of the CGIAR as well as some theoretical analysis, the publication aims to assist decision-makers at differents levels with information on the costs involved in the conservation of genetic resources. Thus, hightening the awareness of increasing the cost effectiveness of different conservation methods to sustain conservation efforts. These studies indicate in particular the need for sustainable financing of the conservation of crop genetic resources, an improvement of the cost effectiveness of the conservation activities and the establishment of a constant quality and cost monitoring process.

Book Description Berlin Springer, 2007. Gebundene Ausgabe. Book Condition: Neu. Gebraucht - Wie neu ungelesen, sehr guter Zustand; Rechnung mit MwSt.; unused/unread, very good condition; Bestellungen bis 15 Uhr werden am gleichen Werktag verschickt. ;.The book deals with the economics of conservation of plant genetic resources for food and agriculture in low income countries. This is done by developing concepts and discussing case studies. Only discussing the issues of access to and benefit sharing of plant genetic resources, unfortunately public discussion has neglected the serious problem of financing the conservation efforts because to date the issues of access to and benefit sharing of plant genetic resources have merely been discussed. The global situation of the conserved genetic resources is alarming, mainly due to the fact that the institutes, above all those in developing countries, do not have enough financial resources. Hence, it is imperative that the costs are taken into consideration. The contributions are grouped around theoretical approaches and empirical studies. The estimation of conservation costs help to allocate the appropriate financial assistance to the relevant countries for conserving their natural resources and assist in rationing scarce resources among competing crops which need to be covered under the conservation programmes. - The book deals with the economics of conservation of plant genetic resources for food and agriculture in low income countries.
