EU-China Workshop Report on Access and Benefit Sharing (ABS) and Digital Sequence Information on Genetic Resources (DSI)
The EU-China Workshop on Access and Benefit Sharing and Digital Sequence Information was held virtually on 28-29 May 2020. The 26 Participants represented national authorities in China and the EU, the European Commission, the current and future Presidencies of the European Union and the Secretariat of the CBD. Stakeholder sectors were represented by senior personnel from databases, research, biological collections, forestry, ecology, agriculture and business. The workshop was a platform to help develop ideas and build a shared understanding on issues of common concern and thus contribute to the preparation of COP15. The objective in this context was the exchange of views on one of the central enabling topics for the post-2020 biodiversity framework: Access and Benefit Sharing (ABS) and Digital Sequence Information on Genetic Resources (DSI). A further objective was to better understand respective ABS requirements of the Parties, and to explore the operation of the ABS regulations of the EU and China to inform both counterparts.
