Implementation of the Nagoya Protocol for Culture Collections Workshop

The Nagoya Protocol on Access and Benefits Sharing (ABS) supplements the Convention on Biological Diversity’s third objective on the fair and equitable sharing of benefits arising from the utilisation of genetic resources. Those conducting research and development on genetic resources may be required to gain permission for access, and negotiate terms of use, including any benefit sharing agreements with the provider country. Sometimes, these genetic resources will be deposited in collections, before being transferred to subsequent users. With well-developed procedures, collections can play an important role in ensuring the traceability of genetic resources from access to end-user and thereby facilitate user compliance.
