Purpose: To build the research and conservation potential of plant scientists and conservationists in South Africa by setting up a unique archive of plant genetic resources in the form of a DNA bank, and to formulate a policy framework and supporting documents to facilitate its scientific use under strict control and in line with developing South African CBD policy on access to genetic resources.
Outputs: 1. Five partner organisations able to initiate, participate in and monitor research on plant genetic resources, for application towards in situ and ex situ conservation goals and sustainable use2. DNA from all S African plant genera preserved for future and genes sequenced3. Policy and GMTAs developed and in use 4. University-level training5. Publications and seminars
