Plant genetic resources conserved in the CGIAR genebanks underpin the Centers' breeding programs and supply breeders, researchers and farmers throughout the world with a broad diversity of crops and their wild relatives. Given the international legal requirement that the Centers maintain the collections to international standards and make them available without restriction, it is important that the CGIAR Consortium have an accurate estimate of the costs involved in meeting these obligations so that the necessary funding can be guaranteed as a matter of priority.
