MusaNet was proposed as a network of scientists with expertise and interest focused on genetic resources management and use, and part of the interest of the National Programmes. It will provide advice and be involved in development projects and their implementation. MusaNet could play a key role in rationalisation of collections. It will rely on strong partnership. The establishment of MusaNet as the “Expert Committee” responsible for implementing the Global Strategy will rely on the four working groups that will proceed consolidate the work initiated during the workshop, the representatives of the four regional networks, and Promusa.
