As we see in this special issue of Farming Matters, co-produced with Bioversity International, it poses many challenges. At the same time, farmers around the world are leading successful initiatives for access and benefit sharing.

Le protocole de Nagoya et sa transcription dans le projet de loi français sur la biodiversité sont un pas en avant pour lutter contre l’accaparement abusif de ressources biologiques. Les populations locales devraient ainsi pouvoir mieux bénéficier des avantages issus de la commercialisation des éléments du vivant.Néanmoins, l’intérêt des entreprises privées reste prioritaire et la portée …

Industry benefits but does not pay its dues. Patents are an assault on genetic resources — AgriCultures Network

Industry benefits but does not pay its dues. Patents are an assault on genetic resources — AgriCultures Network | The Nagoya Protocol on Access and Benefit-Sharing | Scoop.it
Patents increasingly undermine the strong legal edifice patiently constructed by UPOV (1). However, the International Treaty on Plant Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture guarantees free access to the main industrial resource of plant breeders - peasants’ seeds collected from farms across the world. This article argues that broadening the reach of patents over genetic resources is increasingly replacing benefit sharing, which undermines the multilateral governance of our common heritage. It concludes that the Treaty offers a new legal basis to govern access to plant genetic resources for food and agriculture and to compel industry to pay its dues.
