Access to Genetic Resources in Latin America and the Caribbean: implementation of the Nagoya Protocol at a national level






The contributions presented in this work are intended to focus on the critical elements of ABS which are determinant -in the view of the authors- to be successful or fail at promoting the value of genetic resources of a country and the associated traditional knowledge of indigenous and local communities and ensuring the fair and equitable sharing of benefits arising from their utilization. Thus, it is guaranteed that everyone wins: the country, indigenous and local communities, researchers, research institutions, and users; as well as conservation and the sustainable use of biodiversity. In short, it aims to understand what elements must be present or at least be considered in an effective and efficient ABS national framework.
