The CBD for Botanists:
An introduction to the Convention on Biological Diversity for people working with botanical collections
This presentation pack provides basic information on the CBD for botanical institutions. It focuses on the issue of ‘access to genetic resources and benefit-sharing’, and its practical implications. The pack includes slides and suggested speaker’s notes, and a resources section offering more detailed information, useful links and suggestions for further reading. It also includes the text of the CBD and the Bonn Guidelines. It is designed to be a flexible training tool, adaptable to different audiences, but can also be read for practical guidance on implementation. The pack is a product of a recent Darwin Initiative project.
