The workshop was organized by the Secretariat of the Convention on Biological Diversity in collaboration with the Ministry of Environment of Japan and the Aichi Prefecture, with the generous support of the Japan Biodiversity Fund, and under the guidance of the Co-Chairs of the Open-ended Working Group. The workshop was attended by representatives of the Parties to the Convention from the region, as well as relevant organizations. The workshop was conducted in English with sessions in plenary and break out groups. Several events also took place on the margins of the consultation workshop, including a reception and excursion hosted by Aichi Prefecture and evening side events on the Satoyama Initiative and on the Japan Biodiversity Fund-IPBES capacity-building activities.

January 28, 2019 –> Asia, Expertise.

The Regional Consultation Workshop on the Post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework for Asia and the Pacific was held from 28 to 31 January 2019, in Nagoya, Aichi Prefecture, Japan.

The consultation was opened on 28 January 2019 by His Excellency, Mr. Minoru Kiuchi, State Minister of the Environment of Japan. In his remarks, he welcomed the participants to the consultation and noted the symbolism of beginning the discussions on the post-2020 framework in the same place where the Strategic Plan for Biodiversity 2011-2020 had been adopted.

Mr. Minoru Kiuchi called on the Asian and Pacific region to bring together its collective wisdom to help chart a course for reaching the 2050 Vision of living in harmony with nature.

Following his remarks, Mr. Toshihiro Morita, Director-General, Department of the Environment, Aichi Prefecture, welcomed participants to the Aichi Prefecture and noted that the Prefecture had been working on the conservation and revitalization of biodiversity in collaboration with various groups in order to reach the Aichi Biodiversity Targets. In particular, he noted the efforts of the Prefecture in relation to the Group of Leading Subnational Governments towards the Aichi Biodiversity Targets.

The Nagoya Protocol has broad applicability to guide how we do international research, plan future collections of biological materials and information, and manage collections and documents from the past.

2014 The Nagoya Protocol entered into force in late October, 2014, with nearly 100 countries signing, and even though many countries had not signed, like the United States, many government agencies, companies, and researchers began to more strictly adhere to the Protocol framework and document evidence of compliance. Many countries consider this entry date the time when the Nagoya Protocol must be followed in signatory countries.

2000 The precursor to the Nagoya Protocol was adopted as a supplementary agreement to the CBD.

Key Events.

2016 Another CBD meeting was held, in Mexico. The CBD grew to 196 ‘parties’ (aka countries and sovereign states), demonstrating nearly global participation in the CBD. Several parties present did not ratify the Protocol, including the United States and Canada.

A genetic resource is a physical object of biological origin and the intellectual information associated with it such as traditional knowledge. They have actual or potential value and contain functional units of heredity that can be explored through research and exploited in development.

The Nagoya Protocol is a multilateral treaty that sets up a legal framework for utilizing genetic resources.

A precursor to the Nagoya Protocol, called the Bonn Guidelines, began to be implemented, but the language of the protocol was ‘encouraged’ not ‘enforced’. For example, people could still file for patents without needing to name the country of origin of the biological source of the patented product.

2018 104 parties had ratified the Protocol at the time of the CBD meeting, the ‘COP13’ in Egypt. Parties who ratified developed plans to set up national focal points and other means to facilitate the implementation of the Protocol.

2010 This year marked the United Nations Decade on Biodiversity, where a revised and improved Strategic Plan for Biodiversity was adopted by the CBD in Nagoya, Japan. The Nagoya meeting also developed Aichi Biodiversity Targets for the world to meet by 2020. Find more here: https://www.cbd.int/sp/targets/

The ‘Nagoya Protocol on Access to Genetic Resources and the Fair and Equitable Sharing of Benefits Arising from their Utilization’ started as a concept that arose from the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD). In short:

Neither the Nagoya Protocol nor the CBD are intended to slow or prevent research. These efforts are to help facilitate fair and equitable benefit from activities such as research, in the global interest of having more capacity to understand and protect biodiversity , which we are losing at an alarming rate.

The Nagoya Protocol creates a legal framework to consider the requests of developing countries (or any country that has ratified the protocol). It also incentivizes the streamlining of community-government and permitting processes so as to encourage broader access to genetic resources, to catalyze biodiversity science, and to build capacity across human diversity that will enable people to slow biodiversity loss around the planet.

The Nagoya Protocol was established because looser regulations of the past led to many indigenous genetic resources being used without proper attribution to or benefit sharing with provider communities.

1993 The Convention on Biological Diversity, an international agreement, came into force (not the Nagoya Protocol). It was signed by every country except the Holy See and the United States.

2019 This year and next year marks an interim session, where information, policy, and infrastructure are continuing to be developed to help the Nagoya Protocol be successfully implemented. Recognizing it takes time to put the necessary systems in place, people are encouraged to abide by the Protocol guidelines, work with national focal points if they are available, and maintain documentation of consent and agreements.
