Three new ratifications edge landmark treaty on genetic resources towards entry into force

Three new ratifications to the Nagoya Protocol on Access to Genetic Resources and the Fair and Equitable Sharing of Benefits Arising from their Utilization provide significant momentum towards its entry into force. The recent ratifications by Benin, Burkina Faso and Myanmar bring the total number of ratifications to the ground-breaking treaty under the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) to 29. This means that only 21 more ratifications are needed for the Protocol to enter into force.
