Convention on biological diversity - Access to genetic resources

The 2970th Council meeting on General Affairs and External Relations held in Luxembourg on 26 October 2009 adopted a decision authorising the Commission to participate in negotiations on an international regime on access to genetic resources in the framework of the convention on biological diversity (CBD). The CBD is the main international framework for measures to conserve biological diversity and for the fair and equitable sharing of benefits arising from the use of genetic resources. It provides a general framework for access to genetic resources. In 2002 at the world summit on sustainable development, it was agreed to launch negotiations on an international regime on access and benefit sharing in the framework of the CBD.
