LEAVING ROOM FOR FUTURE ABS NORM DEVELOPMENT UNDER THE INTERNATIONAL REGIME – THE EXAMPLE OF AGRICULTURAL MICROBIAL GENETIC RESOURCES
CGIAR’s System-wide Genetic Resources Programme
Date and Time
24 March 2010 13:15 - 14:45
Speakers will address how – in the longer term -- access and benefit sharing norms under the International Regime could be fashioned to support the use of microbial genetic resources in agricultural research and development, ultimately contributing to increased food security. Because there is not time before Nagoya for delegates to consider such approaches, it is important that the IR text creates a framework for the evolution of focused abs norms in the future.
