DescriptionThe Genetic Resources Information System (GENRES) has been developed as an on-line information system by the Information and Coordination Centre for Biological Diversity (IBV) of the Federal Agency for Agriculture and Food (BLE). GENRES supports the implementation of the Federal Ministry for Food and Agriculture (BMEL) concept for the conservation and sustainable utilization of genetic resources for food, agriculture and forestry as well as the execution of The National Programmes for Plant, Animal, Forest an Aquatic Genetic Resources. On this basis, GENRES is moving into the direction of a monitoring instrument for these programmes. GENRES serves as the German Clearing House Mechanism (CHM) for genetic resources in food, agriculture, forestry, and fisheries in implementation of the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD). GENRES provides an overview of relevant documents, facts, projects and other measures for the conservation and sustainable utilization of genetic resources for food, agriculture and forestry in Germany, Europe and internationally. GENRES is a platform for the support of international co-operation between relevant institutions and organisations in Germany and in partner countries.
