Preparing and implementing a national strategy and action plan will enable countries to translate the Global Plan of Action into an effective and comprehensive approach to the sustainable use, development and conservation of their animal genetic resources. It will enhance their efforts to increase food production and food security, reduce poverty and promote rural development.
