The FAO Domestic Animal Diversity Information System

14 October 2008 | Project description

 

FAO maintains the Domestic Animal Diversity Information System - DAD-IS to continuously assess the state of livestock genetic diversity and the state of management of animal genetic resources in the different countries and regions. It is a communication and information tool for implementing strategies for the management of animal genetic resources (AnGR). It provides the user with searchable databases of breed-related information and images, management tools, and a library of references, links and contacts of Regional and National Coordinators for the Management of Animal Genetic Resources. It provides countries with a secure means to control the entry, updating and accessing of their national data.
