A community protocol is a document, produced by a local community, about the biological diversity it creates and conserves, its knowledge, values and governance systems. Community protocols are an important way for local people to claim their rights under national and international law, especially through the Nagoya Protocol to the Convention on Biological Diversity. They can serve as an interface between communities and external actors such as users of genetic resources and associated traditional knowledge.
 
This side event will discuss experiences with community protocols in the ABS context and present two new resources:
- A manual on community protocols for pastoralists and livestock keepers (by the League for Pastoralists Peoples and the LIFE Network)
- A document with lessons learned and case studies of community protocols in Africa (by Natural Justice and the ABS Capacity Development Initiative)
 
Presenters will share experiences from the facilitation of several community protocol and share lessons and guidance. The event will close with a discussion with participants on future action to support and recognize community protocols, including the role of Competent National Authorities.
