Folder What is the Nagoya Protocol?


After more than a decade of negotiations the unanimous adoption of the text of the Nagoya Protocol on 29th October, 2010 by the 193 Parties of the Convention of Biological Diversity is considered a historical moment.

The Protocol's aim is to prevent biopiracy and regulate access to genetic resources and the sharing of benefits arising from their utilization. The Protocol entered into force after the 90th day of the 50th ratification, on 12 October, 2014.
