Resource for plant breeding and alternative crops, access to training and knowledge resources. The Global Partnership Initiative for Plant Breeding Capacity Building (GIPB) is a multi-party initiative of knowledge institutions around the world that have a track record in supporting agricultural research and development, working in partnership with country programs committed to developing stronger and effective plant breeding capacity. As a partnership of stakeholders from the public, private and civil society sectors, the initiative is aimed at catalyzing and supporting national, regional and global action among relevant international organizations, foundations, universities and research institutes, corporate and business sector, civil society associations, and national and regional bodies. There is a valuable knowledge resource center on the site and global forum that provides access to networking opportunities, plant breeding clinics, blogs and questions and answers.
