Ninth meeting of the Ad Hoc Open-ended Working Group on Access and Benefit-sharing (WG ABS 9)

The purpose of this event will be to talk about the formation of formal networks to protect natural resources and traditional knowledge. The workshop will discuss these issues within the larger context of the indigenous movement in the Americas. It will also provide specific pitfalls in the formation of networks as they evolve, or stagnate, from an informal to a formal state.
