Study on Experiences Gained with the Development and Implementation of the Nagoya Protocol and Other Multilateral Mechanisms and the Potential Relevance of Ongoing Work Undertaken by Other Processes, Including Case Studies

Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report

Abstract

This study was requested by the Conference of the Parties serving as the meeting of the Parties to the Nagoya Protocol in 2014 (decision NP-1/10) to analyse: (i) the experiences gained with the development and implementation of the Nagoya Protocol and other multilateral mechanisms; and (ii) the potential relevance of ongoing work undertaken by other processes, including case studies in relation to ex situ and in situ genetic resources, traditional knowledge associated with genetic resources, and transboundary situations. Some experience has been gained so far with the development and implementation of the Nagoya Protocol at the national and regional levels, with regard to “situations in which it is not possible to provide prior informed consent,“ “transboundary situations“ and “contributions to conservation and
sustainable use“. The selected case studies provide evidence of stakeholders’ voluntary initiatives that can contribute to multilateral benefit-sharing mechanisms or complement them.
