Implementing the Plant Treaty’s multilateral system of access and benefit-sharing in Rwanda: Background analysis, recommendations and draft legal text for consideration

The study analyzes options for implementing the Plant Treaty's multilateral system of access and benefit-sharing in Rwanda.

The study includes an overview of a range of pre-existing Rwandan national policies and laws that are of potential relevance when developing a strategy for implementing the multilateral system, identifying complementarities and (in a few rare cases) conflicts between those policies and laws and Rwanda's commitments under the Plant Treaty.

The study presents the results of the authors' analysis of 8 issues that policy makers need to take into consideration when developing a strategy to implement the multilateral system. 

The study culminates with draft text of a national law to implement the multilateral system in Rwanda, (in a way that is mutually supportive of strategies to implement the Nagoya Protocol).

To  conduct the study, the  authors 'piloted' use of the recently published  Decision-making tool for national implementation of the Plant Treaty's multilateral system of access and benefit-sharing (Joint Capacity Building Programme 2018).
