Joint Capacity Building Programme (2017) Mutually supportive implementation of the Nagoya Protocol and the Plant Treaty: Scenarios for consideration by national focal points and other interested stakeholders. Bioversity International, Rome.


Bioversity International works with a wide range of international and national partners to implement the International Treaty on Plant Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture (Plant Treaty) and the Nagoya Protocol of the Convention on Biological Diversity in mutually supportive ways. The scenarios presented in this collection are designed to help national focal points, competent authorities and other stakeholders work through areas of uncertainty, so that they can develop clearly articulated, mutually supportive, national level approaches to implementing the Plant Treaty and the Nagoya Protocol.

Joint Capacity Building Programme (2018). Decision-making tool for national implementation of the Plant Treaty’s multilateral system of access and benefit-sharing. Bioversity International, Rome, Italy.


This decision making tool is designed to assist national policy makers and other stakeholders to identify appropriate measures to implement the Plant Treaty’s multilateral system of access and benefit-sharing in their countries. It is the product of eight years of experience working with partners in numerous countries developing national policies under the overall framework of the FAO/Bioversity International/ITPGRFA Secretariat Joint Capacity Building Programme for Developing Countries on Implementation of the ITPGRFA and its Multilateral System of Access and Benefit-sharing. The decision-making tool is divided into the following eleven sections corresponding to issues that national-level policy actors need to address: 1.Who is responsible for promoting and coordinating national implementation? 2.What is facilitated access to PGRFA under the multilateral system and who has the right to facilitated access? 3.Who may authorize access to PGRFA under the multilateral system? 4.What processes and criteria should be followed to consider requests for PGRFA included in the multilateral system? 5.How to deal with requests for purposes that are (or may be) beyond the scope of the multilateral system? 6.What PGRFA are automatically included in the multilateral system? 7.How to encourage voluntary inclusions by natural and legal persons? 8.How to ensure legal space for the implementation of the multilateral system? 9.How to address benefit-sharing? 10.How to deal with reporting obligations regarding transfers and sales? 11.Who monitors the use of PGRFA under the multilateral system and enforces the multilateral system’s terms and conditions? Each section is presented in a question-and-answer format. Among other things, each section considers: •if there are means of simultaneously implementing other parts of the ITPGRFA, for example conservation (Article 5), sustainable use (Article 6), farmers' rights (Article 9) or the global information system (article 17) •if there are important issues to consider related to the mutually supportive implementation of the Nagoya Protocol on access and benefit-sharing? •If it is useful, given the legal and political culture of the country concerned, to develop new policies or laws to implement the multilateral system (which underscoring that many countries are implementing the multilateral system without creating new laws) At the end of each section, draft ‘baseline’ legal provisions are provided. They can be adapted and incorporated into new laws and administrative guides, if and when they are considered to be useful.
