Parks Australia is now the lead agency implementing the Nagoya Protocol (negotiated last year through the Convention on Biological Diversity).
As Australia’s lead agency implementing the Nagoya Protocol, Parks Australia is advising government on signing and ratifying this new treaty — which sets out an international framework for how companies and researchers work with the owners, including traditional owners, of native plants and animals used for potential commercial products such as new drugs.
Ben Phillips, the Director of our Protected Area Policy and Biodiscovery team, now sits on the newly established Bureau for the Nagoya Protocol as the JUSCANZ rep – representing Japan, US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and some other non EU European countries.
Parks Australia and Flinders University in South Australia are also hosting the second National Biodiscovery Forum in August this year. The forum will have a special focus on marine biodiscovery and the Nagoya Protocol.
