    The Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) has as objectives the conservation of biological diversity, the sustainable use of its components and the fair and equitable sharing of the benefits arising out of the utilization of genetic resources, including by appropriate access to genetic resources and by appropriate transfer of relevant technologies, taking into account all rights over those resources and to technologies, and by appropriate funding (Article 1 of the CBD).

    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 has as an objective the fair and equitable sharing of the benefits arising from the utilization of genetic resources, including by appropriate access to genetic resources and by appropriate transfer of relevant technologies, taking into account all rights over those resources and to technologies, and by appropriate funding, thereby contributing to the conservation of biological diversity and the sustainable use of its components (Article 1 of the Nagoya Protocol).

    The Cartagena Protocol on Biosafety to the Convention on Biological Diversity has as an objective to contribute to ensuring an adequate level of protection in the field of the safe transfer, handling and use of living modified organisms resulting from modern biotechnology that may have adverse effects on the conservation and sustainable use of biological diversity, taking also into account risks to human health, and specifically focusing on transboundary movements.

    The Programme of Work on the Implementation of Article 8(j) and Related Provisions of the Convention on Biological Diversity (2000) has as an objective to promote within the framework of the Convention a just implementation of Article 8(j) and related provisions, at local, national, regional and international levels and to ensure the full and effective participation of indigenous and local communities at all stages and levels of its implementation.

    For the post-2020 global biodiversity framework, what can be an objective of the future Programme of Work on Traditional Knowledge and issues related to indigenous peoples and local communities under the CBD? How can this objective also consider the work under the Nagoya and Cartagena Protocols ? Share your views.

    It is appropriate that to understand the progress has been made and the lessons learnt from the implementation of Programme of work on TK before this question is answered.

     

    The evaluation of Aichi Target 18 indicated that the progress of the target is on the track but on an insufficient rate, indicating more effects need to be done.

     

    First of all, the working group on 8(j) has adopted series of guidelines to provide guidance on respecting TK, innovations and practices of IPLCs, but more efforts is needed to implement them at national/subnational level. These efforts could create an enabling environment for respecting TK, innovations and practices of IPLCs.

     

    Secondly, the Parties would integrate some elements regarding how TK, innovations and practices could be fully integrated and reflected in their NBSAP or dedicated action plans in order to implement the Convention.

     

    Moreover, it is envisaged that capacity building on management of genetic resources and associated TKs, as well as negotiation for PIC/ MAT requirements would be enhanced in order to improve IPLC’s capacity on implementing of the Nagoya Protocol, in order to benefit them from the utilization of GR and associated TKs.
