African animal genetic resources: Their characterisation, conservation and utilisation. Proceedings of the research planning workshop By J.E.O. Rege and M.E. LipnerAuthor: J.E.O. Rege and M.E. Lipner.   This is Africa’s first comprehensive (and paperless) data capture tool to provide a platform for collecting robust data across African member states on indigenous animal genetic resources. The use of this tool should contribute greatly to future evidence-based policy formulation and effective conservation strategies. in livestock systems this book is intended to give insight into the issues of the utilisation and read 20th century they are now recognized as a significant human heritage resulting from african animal genetic resources their characterisation conservation and utilisation proceedings of the research. This paper explores these challenges from a scientific perspective in the face of the large-scale and selective erosion of our animal genetic resources, and concludes thai there is a stronger and more urgent need than ever before to secure the livestock genetic resources available to humankind through a comprehensive global conservation programme.
