Towards Best Practice Guidelines on Integrating DNA Fingerprinting of Crops into Large-Scale Household Surveys
CGIAR Independent Science and Partnership Council (ISPC)
Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation Headquarters, Seattle, U.S.
A collaboration between CGIAR Standing Panel on Impact Assessment; CGIAR Excellence in Breeding Platform; World Bank Living Standards Measurement Study team, and University of Minnesota. The focus of this workshop is to agree on how best to meet the challenge of collecting valid data at a policy-relevant scale, about varietal use by farmers in the first instance and – with subsequent rounds of data collection – varietal turnover and rates of diffusion of new varieties.
