Namibia: Biodiversity Convention Set to Bring Environmental Justice


The Namibian (Ondangwa) – NAMIBIA has started with the development of national laws and regulations that will allow rural people to benefit from genetic resources found in their environments. Namibia is a party to the United Nations Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD), whose third objective calls for the fair and equitable sharing of benefits arising from the utilization of genetic resources. The Convention's Nagoya Protocol on Access and Benefit Sharing (ABS) agreed in October last year seeks to place developing countries in a better position to benefit from their resources and to provide incentives for the conservation and sustainable use of their biodiversity.

The Nagoya Protocol recognizes that the authority to determine access to genetic resources rests with the national governments and is subject to national legislation. "The challenge for us now is to align our law with this new international instrument," said Nandi-Ndaitwah, the Environment and Tourism Minister. She added that the ministry was finalizing the bill in order to ratify the Nagoya Protocol before the deadline of February 1 next year. http://allafrica.com/stories/201104070385.html
