StellungnahmeSynthetic Biology, Open Science and the Nagoya Protocol - Key insights from a NeFo science-policy workshop

Workshop participants strongly re-affirmed the goals of the CBD and the ensuing Nagoya Protocol for the protection and sustainability of biodiversity as well as access and benefit sharing. It is important to implement the already existing regulations in a feasible way. The participants discussed that it is helpful to keep the big picture in mind and that until now an industrialized North often profits more from benefits arising from genetic resources than the Global South does.
