Facilitating Prior Informed Consent in the Context of Genetic Resources and Traditional Knowledge







UICN, Facilitating Prior Informed Consent in the context of genetic resources and traditional knowledge, In: Discussion Paper. May 19, 2004


This paper traces the evolution of prior informed consent (PIC) and describes the importance of PIC to achieving the objectives of the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD). It briefly highlights elements of current approaches to obtaining PIC from national governments and local communities, identifies limitations to obtaining PIC, and provides examples of how the Bonn Guidelines do and do not respond to these limitations. The paper does not provide a detailed analysis of all issues related to implementation of PIC, but rather highlights issues that will, hopefully, promote constructive discussions to advance progress on implementation of PIC.
