The set of infographic-style policy briefs on Access and Benefit Sharing, prepared by Rachel Wynberg and Sarah Laird, have been translated into French.
With support from the ABS Capacity Development Initiative, the briefs relate to the following sectors involved in ABS: pharmaceuticals, agriculture, cosmetics, industrial biotechnology, food and beverages, and botanicals. Presented in a colourful, infographic style, the briefs are organised around key points on trends and practices in markets, research and development, and the use of traditional knowledge. This format makes it possible to present a large amount of often complex information in compact, digestible 12-page booklets. The briefs are intended to provide governments, companies, researchers, communities, and others with background information to assist with the development of ABS measures to implement the Nagoya Protocol.
