The forthcoming edited volume Genetic Resources, Justice and Reconciliation: Canada and Global Access and Benefit Sharing results from wide-ranging work conducted in partnership with Indigenous Peoples in Canada, a country that serves as both user and provider of genetic resources and associated traditional knowledge. Its authors assert that Nagoya Protocol implementation offers a manageable, concrete policy opportunity to support Indigenous rights in Canada and to demonstrate Canada’s continuing commitment to the CBD.

At this event, the book’s editor and a number of its contributors will provide an overview of the volume’s themes and conclusions. A panel of international ABS experts will consider the state of ABS implementation in Canada and internationally, and how experiences gained in collaborative implementation of ABS in communities of the South might be used to jump-start ABS implementation in communities in Canada (i.e., South-North collaboration).  Presentations and subsequent panel and open discussions will be of broad relevance to those with interests in Indigenous rights, sustainable community development, and the environment.
