Cuba Joins Nagoya Protocol

Havana, October 5 (RHC)-- Cuba has confirmed its adherence to the Nagoya Protocol on Access to Genetic Resources and the Fair and Equitable Sharing of Benefits Arising from their Utilization to the Convention on Biological Diversity.

A report by the Cuban Ministry for Science, technology and the Environment, explains that after submitting the required documentation at UN Headquarters in New York, the Caribbean state has now become State Party 66 of the Nagoya Protocol -- a 2010 supplementary agreement to the 1992 Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD).

The protocol provides a transparent legal framework for the implementation of one of the three objectives of the CBD: the fair and equitable sharing of benefits arising out of the utilization of genetic resources, thereby contributing to the conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity.
