How to publish ABS procedures on the ABS Clearing-House
This presentation was delivered as a webinar on publishing Access and Benefit-Sharing (ABS) procedures on the ABS Clearing-House (ABS-CH) held in February 2020 in English, French and Spanish. The webinar is aimed at strengthening capacities of ABS-CH Publishing Authorities and National Authorized Users to publish their ABS rules and procedures in the ABS-CH. ABS procedures are meant to provide simple and straightforward guidance to applicants seeking access to genetic resources and/or associated traditional knowledge through the steps required to access such resources or knowledge in the country. ABS procedures therefore provide very useful information to publish on a country profile page.
