Marco Rebelo from Institute for Nature Conservation and Forestry will present a seminar entitled "The regime on the utilization of genetic resources - rights and obligations of users" at 14.30 pm at CIIMAR facilities.

From the adoption of the Convention on Biological Diversity in 1992 to the publication of Decree-Law 122/2017 of September 21, the historical and legal frameworks of the current regime on access to genetic resources and the fair and equitable sharing of benefits arising out its utilization (ABS) will be addressed. The main ABS notions and concepts will be presented with the purpose of informing users of genetic resources of their rights and obligations under the current ABS regime.
