Digital Sequence Information - An Interview with Preston Hardison on the Convention on Biodiversity
In linking conservation efforts to the economic goal of using biological resources sustainably, the Convention on Biodiversity (CBD) sets out three main objectives: the conservation of biological diversity, the sustainable use of the components of biological diversity, and the fair and equitable sharing of the benefits arising out of the utilization of genetic resources. How do Indigenous Peoples' rights tie into the Convention on Biodiversity?
In this podcast, Preston Hardison answers this question. Preston Hardison has served as an assistant and negotiator at the CBD, the Nagoya Protocol, the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) Intergovernmental Committee on Intellectual Property and Genetic Resources, Traditional Knowledge and Folklore (IGC), and the Intergovernmental Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES).
