Project: EZproject

Project Details


The Nagoya Protocol (CBD, 2010) regulates the global exchange of genetic resources, while for plant genetic resources the FAO International Treaty on Plant Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture (ITPGRFA) is also a relevant mechanism for exchange. Intellectual property rights on the other hand are regulated through a number of other international agreements, such as the International Convention for the Protection of New Varieties of Plants (UPOV Convention)  and the Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights (TRIPS) Agreement of the World Trade Organization (WTO). 

This project will provide relevant information to policy makers on the relevance and potential of DSI for the conservation and sustainable use of genetic resources. The relevance of using DSI for food security and nutrition will be considered, and different scenarios for regulating access to and  use of DSI will be explored.
