Plant scientists rely on open access to information (DNA and RNA sequences data, for example) to do their daily work. Things might change for them in the future because of the obligations to respect access and benefit-sharing (ABS) rights under the Convention on Biodiversity (CBD) and the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) Treaty on Plant Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture) and maybe the Nagoya Protocols on Access and Benefit Sharing. Therefore, plant scientist needs to have a voice in the policies and practices that are developed internationally.
This panel will bring together law experts and plant researchers to discuss how their countries and institutions are adapting to these policies.
This webinar is part of the RAFV2021 FREE OF CHARGE conference.
