The Nagoya Protocol and Access and Benefit-Sharing in Australia
Associate Professor Daniel Robinson and Dr Margaret Raven from the University of New South Wales presented and facilitated a workshop for the NAAKPA Steering Committee in Darwin. This involved explaining research and development on plants and animals, patents involving Kakadu Plums, the Nagoya Protocol and Prior Informed Consent. The workshop also included an overview of Benefit sharing and Australian ABS, intellectual property and collaborators in the International ABS Initiative. Daniel and Margaret are part of an Australia Research Council grant to identify ways to protect biodiversity-related Indigenous knowledge.
