Delegates then deliberated text on policy and strategies of governments' cooperation with organizations to expand the characterization, evaluation and number of core collections to facilitate gene use. At issue was Canada's proposal to include, "in particular the International Agricultural Centres of the CGIAR". Based on consultations with dissenting delegations who opposed specific reference to the CGIAR, CANADA revised its proposal by generalizing the reference to read, "international agricultural centres of the CGIAR". This proposal was supported by the EU and EGYPT. The final formulation retains "international agricultural centres" but makes no specific reference to the CGIAR.
