On March 4th, Brazil deposited in the United Nations the letter of ratification of the Nagoya Protocol, which deals with Access and Benefit Sharing of the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD).
The Protocol is an international agreement supplementary to the Convention on Biological Diversity, which regulates the access and allocation of genetic resources and the respective sharing of monetary and non-monetary benefits.
Accession will allow the participation of the Brazilian State in future deliberations under the Protocol, as it is a country with advanced legislation on biodiversity and benefit-sharing, with a modern agricultural sector and immeasurable genetic resources derived from its environmental heritage.
