European Regional Focal Point for Animal Genetic Resources (ERFP)
The European Regional Focal Point for Animal Genetic Resources (ERFP) is the regional platform to support the in situ and ex situ conservation and sustainable use of animal genetic resources and to facilitate the implementation of FAO's Global Plan of Action for Animal Genetic Resources in Europe.
The FAO asked for the preparation of a regional progress report on the implementation of the Global Plan of Action. The ERFP Steering Committee created an answer and consulted it with the National Coordinators.
The 20th ERFP Assembly Meeting will be held on Friday 29th and Saturday 30th August 2014 following to the 65th annual meeting of the European Federation for Animal Science (EAAP) in Copenhagen, Denmark.
During the last ERFP Assembly Meeting in Nantes (France) the Assembly decided that the tender for the ERFP Secretariat is now opened. If an institution is interested in taking over the ERFP Secretariat, it needs to send the application documents through the National Coordinator for AnGR until 31st December 2013 to the current ERFP Secretariat.
