The Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) is a specialized agency of the United Nations that leads international efforts to defeat hunger. Our goal is to achieve food security for all and make sure that people have regular access to enough high-quality food to lead active, healthy lives. With over 194 member states, FAO works in over 130 countries worldwide. We believe that everyone can play a part in ending hunger.

Currently, millions of accessions are conserved in germplasm collections and breeding pools; many of them are duplicates with valuable information that is lost when the material is transferred from one holder to another. Additionally, different user communities such as plant breeders, data curators, researchers and extensionists, often follow different methods to assign identifiers, according to their needs. The lack of standardization had prevented the community from exchanging PGRFA data worldwide which had been for years one of the main challenges for the effective conservation and sustainable use of PGRFA. By using the DOIs standards adopted by the Governing Body of the International Treaty, users will be able to identify and document their plant material uniquely and permanently and will facilitate data interoperability among different systems. The booklet helps readers to understand how DOIs can be adopted in their daily work and integrated into their institutional workflow, including what data needs to be provided and how to do it. It has to parts: Part I of the Manual includes the Guidelines for the optimal use of Digital Object Identifiers as permanent unique identifiers for PGRFA - v.2 and Part II, Data required for the assignation of Digital Object Identifiers in the Global Information System v.2.1.
