Cost information is useful to monitor the performance of the genebanks. Thus, managers, users, and donors of the genebanks can have an idea of the relative costs of managing plant genetic resources. This information can be used to make users but especially donors aware of the actual costs of conserving and distributing accessions and in this way facilitate fund raising. Managers however do have an idea of genebank operational costs. What is then the added value of using a periodic system to collect costs information for the genebank manager? In this section we present some specific cases where the information collected in the genebanks visited can help in the decision process. It is true that the current amount of information does not allow us to make conclusions across centers, but it does allow for some analysis within the centers.....
