:: Nagoya Protocol on Access and Benefit Sharing -Technical Brief
The objective of this paper is to provide a brief overview of the Nagoya Protocol. In particular, this note focuses on the provisions that may have a bearing on companies working with biodiversity-based ingredients in the food and personal care sectors, and explains their relevance and rationale. It should be kept in mind, however, that the Nagoya Protocol is only a starting point. A lot of the meaning and practical consequences of its provisions will depend on its further development in the context of the CBD, as well as its implementation at the national level.
