Nagoya Protocol Material

What is the Nagoya Protocol on ABS?

The Nagoya Protocol on Access to genetic resources and the fair and equitable sharing of benefits arising from their utilization to the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) is an international agreement which became enforceable in 2014 and seeks to regulate utilization of genetic resources and associated traditional knowledge. The objective is to have a legal frame in each country guaranteeing legal certainty and benefit-sharing mechanisms between users and suppliers of genetic resources.

The UNDP-SEMARNAT Project for the Implementation of the Nagoya Protocol contributes to the fulfillment of the international commitments undertaken by Mexico.
