Protecting Traditional Knowledge, A Priority For Tuvalu’s Biodiversity
Tuvalu acceded to the Nagoya Protocol in August 2018, eager to ensure any use of genetic resources and associated traditional knowledge that leads to commercial benefits will see those benefits shared equally with the owners. “Since then, we have been pleased by the progress from Tuvalu so that the Nagoya Protocol is implemented,” said Mr Rahul Chand the Access and Benefit Sharing Capacity Officer of the Secretariat of the Pacific Regional Environment Programme (SPREP).Stakeholders that participated in the two-day online workshop in March discussed the importance of protecting Tuvalu's traditional knowledge and ensuring that access and benefit-sharing policies are developed to ensure transparency and accountability between providers and users of genetic resources
