Management of Animal Genetic Resources

There are significant gaps in capacity to manage AnGR, particularly in developing countries. International community adopted the Global Plan of Action for Animal Genetic Resources (GPA) at the International Technical Conference on Animal Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture in September 2007. It includes 23 strategic priorities for action grouped into four priority areas: characterization and monitoring; sustainable use and development; conservation; and policies, institutions and capacity-building.

The main responsibility for implementing the GPA lies with national governments. However, some Strategic Priorities are particularly relevant to implementation at regional or international level.

Animal Husbandry Departments in India

Animal husbandry in India is a state subject and every state government is making its policies for livestock and poultry development, human resource development and provides assistance to government and non-government Institutions engaged with such activities. The management of AnGR has overlapping domains involving mainly the departments of Agricultural Research and Education (DARE) and Animal Husbandry and Dairying (DAHD) in the Ministry of Agriculture. DARE is primarily related with research and education on conservation, improvement and development of AnGR whereas DAHD is related with policy formulation and its execution in these and other aspects of animal husbandry in the country.
