DiversityInclusionIn April 2022, the world will gather at the 15th Conference of Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity and the 4th meeting of parties to the Nagoya Protocol, major international treaties aimed at protecting biodiversity and associated traditional knowledge.
On this occasion, the international community is expected to assess the effectiveness of these instruments to achieve the outlined objectives, including ensuring the fair and equitable sharing of the benefits obtained by accessing and using traditional knowledge of indigenous and local communities to carry out research and development of products and services.
Taking advantage of this perfect timing, we propose to carry out a panel that can take stock of this international meeting while discussing current issues on the protection and enhancement of associated traditional knowledge from three different perspectives:
Theme 1: The effectiveness of the Nagoya Protocol and the Convention on Biological Diversity in promoting the sharing of benefits obtained from the use of traditional knowledge: reality or fiction?
Theme 2: The protection of traditional knowledge and benefit-sharing from the perspective of megabiodiverse countries: experiences and perspectives.
Theme 3: Traditional knowledge associated in the digital world: is it possible to guarantee prior consent and benefit sharing in a world where everything is available just a click away?
