The Plant Genetic Resources Strategy for Europe, published by ECPGR, was launched on 30 November 2021 in Brussels, Belgium, together with the overarching Genetic Resources Strategy for Europe, a product of the EU-funded GenRes Bridge project. From 2019 to 2021, GenRes Bridge brought together 17 partners and a wide range of stakeholders to draw up a strategic vision to secure agricultural and forest genetic resources and enable Europe to meet its commitments under the European Green Deal, as well as under global policy frameworks and legislative instruments.
In line with the overarching Genetic Resources Strategy for Europe, three complementary domain-specific strategies for plant, animal and forest genetic resources were produced respectively by ECPGR (the European Cooperative Programme for Plant Genetic Resources), ERFP (the European Regional Focal Point for Animal Genetic Resources) and EUFORGEN (the European Forest Genetic Resources Programme).
