How can the ABS Clearing-House be useful for the private sector and research institutions?

  05 Jul 2018

The private sector and research institutions using or seeking access to genetic resources will find reliable and up-to-date information on how to access genetic resources and traditional knowledge in the ABS Clearing-House in a standardized and organized manner and all in one convenient location, including national contacts and requirements. 

By providing reliable information, the ABS Clearing-House facilitates the connection between users and providers of genetic resources and associated traditional knowledge, and therefore creates opportunities for the development of ABS agreements.

Private sector and research institutions can contribute to the ABS Clearing-House by sharing model contractual clauses, codes of conduct, guidelines and best practices. In order to do so, it is necessary to open a CBD account.
