Webinar and Launch of “Finding Compromise on ABS & DSI in the CBD: Requirements & Policy Ideas from a Scientific Perspective” White Paper 

October 7 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm BST

Ahead of the next negotiations under the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) on Digital Sequence Information (DSI), the WiLDSI project will launch a policy piece on October 7th: “Finding Compromise on ABS & DSI in the CBD: Requirements & Policy Ideas from a Scientific Perspective”.

The study, undertaken by a group of interdisciplinary experts, looks at what policy options could be compatible with scientific concerns around the debates on DSI at CBD. The online event will present the white paper and provide an interactive format for looking at the pros and cons of the policy options as well as offer an opportunity for discussion.

The event will be hosted by the WiLDSI project, an interdisciplinary research project funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) led by the Leibniz Institutes DSMZ and IPK to research viable open access DSI policy options and proactively involve the scientific stakeholder community.

Check out the video of the launch event here. View the Agenda of the webinar.
