Chapter 3: Institutions and funds

Evana Wright


This chapter presents an analysis of the role and operation of national competent authorities established in India and Peru to regulate the protection of traditional knowledge along with other institutions at regional or local level that play a role in governing access to and use of traditional knowledge. These institutions include: the National Biodiversity Authority, State Biodiversity Boards and Biodiversity Management Committees established in India; and INDECOPI and the National Anti-Biopiracy Commission from Peru. The chapter analyses the function and funding of each institution and reviews each institution within the framework of self-determination to determine the level of Indigenous involvement.
