The Eastern Africa Plant Genetic Resources Network (EAPGREN) was initiated by a Stakeholders Meeting held in Kampala 3-5 November 1997. EAPGREN is a regional joint project of National Agricultural Research Systems (NARS) of the ASARECA member countries, viz Burundi, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Kenya, Madagascar, Rwanda, Sudan and Uganda. Within these countries, there are the national focal points for the networks. This network has contributed a lot for our Institute mainly in capacity building.
