In collaboration with CPVO and UPOV, on 23 April CarIPI hosted a webinar on New Plant Varieties Protection and UPOV Membership in the Caribbean: Experience Sharing. The objective was to increase awareness of the importance of plant breeding activities in the region, and the need for efficient systems for granting registration of PVRs. On this occasion the Dominican Republic’s Plant Varieties Office (OREVADO) shared the experience and results of the recent implementation of a functioning PVR framework (result of a CarIPI activity under AWP1) for the benefit of all CS, and especially the countries which have just acceded UPOV, like Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, or are in preparation for joining the Union.
