Customary use, commercial purposes, and Addis Ababa Guidelines
Some biological resources have customarily been traded in local markets and further afield. This is an aspect that is in continuous evolution and needs to be given due consideration in the discussion on sustainable use. I would like to suggest that the Addis Ababa Guidelines should be reviewed and further developed with this in mind in general terms (and the case by case basis be discussed within it).
