DAILY WEB COVERAGE

L-R: Participants from the International Indigenous Forum on Biodiversity (IIFB) with Natalia Aguilar, Lucia Fernanda Kaingáng, Maria Yolanda Teran, and Florina Lopez Miro.

On Tuesday morning, the Intergovernmental Committee for the Nagoya Protocol discussed measures to assist in capacity building, capacity development and strengthening of human and institutional capacities in developing countries, focusing on a possible strategic approach to assist in capacity building and development for ABS under the Protocol, and on a process to further address the issue of capacity before the Protocol’s first meeting of the parties.

The Committee then discussed early experiences and lessons learnt on raising awareness on ABS, as well as the proposed elements and timetable for a strategy on awareness raising on the Nagoya Protocol. Delegates debated whether to submit a revised strategy for adoption by the Protocol’s first meeting of parties or to identify further intersessional work on the strategy.

In the afternoon, the Committee started discussions on cooperative procedures and institutional mechanisms to promote compliance with the Protocol and address cases of non-compliance. Delegates exchanged views on the elements and options for compliance procedures and mechanisms under the Nagoya Protocol, making reference to the compliance mechanisms under the Cartagena Protocol and the International Treaty on Plant Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture. Delegates debated whether Protocol Article 30 (procedures and mechanisms to promote compliance with the Protocol) is related to compliance with domestic measures and mutually agreed terms under Protocol Articles 15-16 and 18. The Secretariat announced the circulation of a legal explanatory note as a non-paper on Wednesday morning, when discussion will continue on compliance.

L-R: Valerie Normand, CBD; Co-Chair Fernando Casas, Colombia; and Co-Chair Janet Lowe, New Zealand.
