Information on the content of the resource
The lessons learned over 10 years by SPREP and the ABS Initiative highlight significant implementation gaps in the Nagoya Protocol. There are incomplete legal and policy frameworks on ABS, limited or lack of monitoring and compliance mechanisms and limited reporting to the ABSCH. Some ABS agreements and permits have been issued by Pacific countries, mostly pre-Nagoya and very few of a commercial nature. Further support to the Pacific needs to assist in the negotiation of more ABS agreements, including those with commercial intent and more significant monetary and non-monetary benefits.
