Mutually supportive implementation of the Nagoya Protocol and the International Treaty on Plant Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture

A workshop for selected countries under the UNDP coordinated project “Strengthening human resources, legal frameworks, and institutional capacities to implement the Nagoya Protocol”

Bioversity International, the UNDP-GEF Project “Strengthening human resources, legal frameworks, and institutional capacities to implement the Nagoya Protocol” and the Secretariat of the International Treaty on Plant Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture (ITPGRFA) co-organized a workshop in FAO, Rome, 21-23 November 2017 with the title “Mutually Supportive Implementation of the Nagoya Protocol and the International Treaty on Plant Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture”. 32 participants from 17 countries participated in the workshop. The main objective was to explore and promote practical approaches and tools to implement both instruments within countries in mutually supportive ways. Legislative, administrative and policy measures were considered by participants. Experts’ presentations were complemented by participatory analyses of practical case studies and hypothetical scenarios where the interface between the Nagoya Protocol and the ITPGRFA can raise legal and procedural issues.
