Free, Prior and Informed Consent in Practice

This side event is organized by the Secretariat of the Convention on Biological Diversity, Indigenous Women's Network on Biodiversity (RMIB-LAC), Conservation International and COICA.

Free, Prior and Informed Consent is an important tool in implementing the Convention on Biological Diversity’s (CBD) program of work on the implementation of Article 8 (j) and related provisions of the CBD. This side event will explore the different ways in which efforts to ensure FPIC support the CBD’s main objectives, especially work under task 7 related to access to traditional knowledge and equitable sharing of benefits. The Secretariat will give an introduction to how FPIC is contributing to work under the Convention, and other partners will highlight how they are using FPIC in their projects related to traditional knowledge.
