Webinar: Clarifying BioTrade and ABS - Presentation, Recording and Resources

On 18 October 2016, the NBSAP Forum hosted the first of two webinars on 'Using Conservation Planning to Address Biosafety and Access to Genetic Resources'. In this session, led by Dr. Balakrishna Pisupati (UNEP) and Mr. David Vivas (UNCTAD), the participants had the opportunity to hear and discuss on BioTrade and ABS and how to develop national ABS frameworks. This webinar provided clarity on how bioresource trade is different from the commercial use of genetic resources, with a focus on conservation and sustainable resource management planning.
