What we do at Ethiopian Biodiversity Institute (EBI)
Ethiopian Plant Genetic Resources Center (PGRC/E) was founded in 1976 based on a bilateral technical cooperation agreement between the Governments of Ethiopia and Germany. Its main objective was to rescue the country's plant genetic resources from adverse impacts of human activities and natural calamities and by this support crop improvement programs. In 1998, it was reorganized to the Institute of Biodiversity Conservation & Research (IBCR) to widen its mandate in order to be able to implement Ethiopia's obligations under the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD). In 2004 it was renamed to the Institute of Biodiversity Conservation (IBC). Nowadays, the institute is named Ethiopian Biodiversity Institute (EBI).
