Animal Genetic Resources, Access and Benefit Sharing

ilse“During the eighth session of the Intergovernmental Technical Working Group on Animal Genetic Resources (ITWG-AnGR 8), the confusion of delegates about how to apply the concept of “Access and Benefit-Sharing” to animal genetic resources (AnGR) was palpable.”

So says Ilse Köhler-Rollefson in her blog written after the recent meeting of the Technical Working Group. You can read more of her thoughts in the blog: Animal genetic resources and “Access and Benefit-Sharing”: not made for each other?

She also reports a new publication entitled “Access and Benefit-sharing of Animal Genetic Resources, using the Nagoya Protocol as a framework for the sustainable use of locally adapted breed” by GIZ and LPP.
