The Strategy has been updated by Musa genetic resources and breeding experts within the framework of MusaNet, which has the mandate to oversee the implementation and further development of the Strategy. The Strategy provides a framework and roadmap to be used by the Musa community for the efficient and effective conservation of the globally important collections of Musa and to strengthen the utilization of the genetic resources. It covers numerous topics, with 12 chapters divided into four main parts: Diversity, Identity, Management and Use. Each chapter contains the three sections: Where we are, Where do we want to go, and How will we get there. It includes recommendations and priorities indicated in several consultation processes following the 2006 version and particularly following the expertise of key groups represented, such as the Regional Research Networks (BAPNET, BARNESA, Innovate Plantain, MusaLAC) and global networks such as ProMusa.
