Services provided by the

Global ABS Community

The Global ABS Community has incorporated two new services to its menu: The Global ABS Legal Clinics, which focuses on the needs of providers of genetic resources and governments; and the Global ABS Business Facility, which support users of genetic resources to comply with the Nagoya Protocol.

These new services now streamline ABS requests from project and non-project countries, expanding the legal and business support to ABS stakeholders and players at the click of a button.
