8. Access to genetic resources and benefit sharing: The Nagoya Protocol in the light of the TRIPS Agreement Linda Briceño Moraia I. INTRODUCTION Access to and utilization of genetic resources express the tension between two different interests: one of the entity who exercises sovereignty over genetic resources located in a given territory and the one of third parties seeking access to those resources in order to undertake scientific research. The Rio Convention on Biodiversity1 and the Nagoya Protocol2 link access to the subsequent sharing of the benefits

liability: outsourcing rule-making to private actors? III.32.1 Introduction This contribution reviews the current state of knowledge on liability and redress to address potential harm to biodiversity from transboundary movements of genetically modified organisms (GMOs). Environmental liability is broadly understood as the legal responsibility to provide a remedy for damaging the environment, although precise definitions remain contested. 1 Liability and redress relating to GMOs is enshrined in the ‘Nagoya-Kuala Lumpur Supplementary Protocol on Liability and

(COP-MOP) acts as its governing body: it adopts decisions to support implementation and further develop the Protocol. As to the latter, the COP-MOP adopted the text of a new treaty, the Nagoya-Kuala Lumpur Supplementary Protocol on Liability and Redress (Supplementary Protocol). 14 III.16.2 Key issues III.16.2.1 Decision-making procedures The Protocol creates two procedures for the transboundary movement of LMOs. The AIA procedure applies to the first transboundary movement of an LMO for international introduction into the environment, and requires

In the field of biodiversity, the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) of 1992 and its relevant protocols – the Cartagena Protocol of 2000 and the Nagoya Protocol of 2010 – introduced a different kind of PIC (see section VI.25.4.3 below). VI.25.3 Legal character and function of the principle As far as the legal character of PIC is concerned, it could be questioned whether the mechanism that we call ‘prior informed consent’ is an environmental principle at all or if it should rather be

. Historically, and in light of the access and benefits sharing (ABS) standards now enshrined in the UN Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) and in its Nagoya Protocol, this situation is perceived as being inequitable and unfair especially for counties with no or limited capacity to undertake oceanographic research and marine bioprospecting. In order to fill this gap, one of the options under consideration is the development of a new international instrument under UNCLOS that would aim to provide an encompassing framework for the effective conservation and sustainable use

of the states’ right to regulate access to ‘their’ genetic resources is essential to promote a coherent implementation of the three objectives of the Convention, namely: (i) the conservation of biological diversity; (ii) the sustainable use of its components; and (iii) the sharing of benefits arising from the utilization of genetic resources. This approach, which has since been expanded by the 2002 Bonn Guidelines 15 and the 2010 Nagoya Protocol, 16 brought about the emergence of the notion of ABS, understood as a crucial means to ensure a reasonable balance
