This webinar, that took place on February 12th, 2020, presented the experience generated in India at the National Biodiversity Authority (NBA), through the Indo-German Biodiversity Partnership (implemented by GIZ), to monitor Indian genetic resources through the creation of an online ABS monitoring system linked to the ABS permit system.

The activity started with an introduction of the IT tool generated to monitor genetic resources, its main features and its possible utilization in third countries, as well as the databases, information and tools that feed this mechanism (Biodiversity informatics, geographical data, scientometrics, patent analytics, the use of web services, among others).
