Significant progress has been made in scientific andBiodiversidade environmental area since it was given the call Nagoya agreement, a protocol that provides for access to genetic resources and fair and equitable sharing of benefits from their use, which was established in the 2010 Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) in the United States.
The Brazilian executive director of the CBD, Braulio Ferreira de Souza days during an event last Thursday (11/06) at the University of São Paulo pointed out that “one of the preconditions posed by various sectors in Brazil to discuss the ratification of the Protocol Nagoya was the first country to approve a national law that dealt with the access to genetic resources and the sharing of benefits “.
As now we have the approval of the new law of Brazilian biodiversity, we hope that this year the National Congress ratifies the protocol, Braulio said the USP event.
The international agreement is in force since October 2014, with 50 ratifications that were essential for its implementation, we hope that Brazil is part of this protocol.
