With the growing experience of implementing the Nagoya Protocol, the issue of a global multilateral benefit sharing mechanism, as proposed in Article 10 of the Protocol, is generating increased attention.  In examining the key needs, modalities and rationale for such a mechanism, issues such as shared TK, transboundary resources and digital sequence information (DSI) have featured prominently.  As part of efforts to contribute to this debate, this panel will discuss some of the key needs and modalities within the current benefit sharing system that compel action with respect to a global multilateral benefit sharing mechanism.  Recognizing remaining uncertainties surrounding these justifications and concerns over the modalities of establishing such a mechanism, panelists will provide reflections from relevant regimes and case studies in responding to the development of an effective benefit sharing regime.

Intellectual Property and the Governance of Traditional Knowledge, Genetic Resources and Traditional Cultural Expressions: Fostering Innovation and Improving Lives


The Intellectual Property and the Governance of Traditional Knowledge, Genetic Resources and Traditional Cultural Expressions: Fostering Innovation and Improving Lives project seeks to establish a leading research hub at CIGI offering policy analysis, technical assistance, capacity building and intellectual leadership for the governance of traditional knowledge, genetic resources and traditional cultural expressions. The project has three main expected outcomes: 1) a defined traditional knowledge research project agenda focusing on comparative case studies over the next 18 months; 2) capacity building and awareness raising initiatives for Canadian Indigenous communities initiatives; 3) and a structured dissemination plan, including an outreach strategy for policy makers and indigenous communities.
