Chapter Summary

This chapter examines the Nagoya Protocol as an implement to operationalise access and benefit-sharing (ABS). It begins with an explanation of the ethical sourcing of biodiversity and its links to ABS. The chapter considers to what extent the Nagoya Protocol has established clear and practical approaches on critical issues such as the scope of international ABS provisions, ABS related to traditional knowledge, a possible multilateral benefit-sharing approach, monitoring, the role of voluntary standards, and technology transfer. It also notices some issues that may be usefully clarified at the domestic level, including the definition of research and development in a way that targets concerns about misappropriation of genetic resources, while encouraging activities that are adding value to and sharing the benefits of biodiversity.

Keywords:access and benefit-sharing (ABS); biodiversity; ethical sourcing; Nagoya protocol; traditional knowledge
