This paper makes a case for an international treaty on animal genetic resources. It argues that animal genetic resources are essential for food security as they are a means of utilizing marginal environments not suitable for crop cultivation, and building blocks for future livestock development.It states that while animal genetic resources are subject to national sovereignty, regional and international cooperation is necessary.The paper concludes that an international legal framework on animal genetic resources would create a level playing field between dryland production systems that conserve genetic diversity, and intensive and industrialized systems that erode it.
