At COP 13 Natural Justice and Public Eye launched a new report which might be of interest for your work: The two worlds of Nagoya – ABS legislation in the EU and provider countries: discrepancies and how to deal with them [PDF].
This study shows the large discrepancies between the EU ABS framework and provider country legislations in how they implement the Nagoya Protocol, and the consequences for access and benefit sharing. The study also presents some constructive suggestions on how to deal with the current discrepancies, so that the rights of provider countries and of indigenous peoples and local communities can still be respected and fulfilled, and fair and equitable benefit sharing can be achieved. This might be of special interest if your country intends to develop or to implement a national law for the implementation of the Nagoya Protocol.
The Report could also be downloaded at the virtual library of the ABS clearing House under: https://absch.cbd.int/database/resource/25E39D55-B77A-2390-E063-B23E8B89D35D
Upon request we are prepared to send you printed copies of the report for free.
To order printed copies or for any further information please contact Laurent Gaberell (see contact details further down).
