This is a proposal to seek financing from the CGIAR Fund for the CGIAR centers’ cost of maintaining and distributing CGIAR crop genetic resources, and to cover one-third of the one-time costs of optimizing the existing collections and introducing additional accessions from the regeneration project. These activities’ costs were identified and calculated in the 2010 genebank costing study which was commissioned jointly by the Consortium Office and the Global Crop Diversity Trust, in collaboration with the ten CGIAR centers that house crop germplasm. This proposal is to finance the 2011 costs for these activities at the CGIAR centers. This proposal was discussed and approved at the 4th Fund Council meeting in April 2011.
