Japan ratifies the Nagoya Protocol



Japan ratifies the Nagoya Protocol on Access to Genetic Resources and the Fair and Equitable Sharing of Benefits Arising from their Utilization to the Convention on Biological Diversity
  •   99 countries have now ratified the Nagoya Protocol, an innovative treaty on access to genetic resources and the fair and equitable sharing of benefits arising from their use
  •   Government of Japan has played key role in supporting implementation of Nagoya Protocol
  •   Entry into force of Nagoya Protocol in 2014 significant achievement for international community.
    22 May 2017 On the occasion of the International Day for Biological Diversity, Japan became the latest country to ratify the Nagoya Protocol on Access to Genetic Resources and the Fair and Equitable Sharing of Benefits Arising from their Utilization, bringing the total number of ratifications to 99.
    Other countries that have ratified the Nagoya Protocol since the second meeting of the Conference of the Parties serving as the meeting of the Parties to the Nagoya Protocol on Access and Benefit-sharing, held in December 2016, include Angola, Portugal, Qatar, and Sao Tome and Principe.
    The Nagoya Protocol is a supplementary agreement to the Convention on Biological Diversity. The Protocol builds on the access and benefit-sharing provisions of the Convention by establishing predictable conditions for access to genetic resources and by helping to ensure the fair and equitable sharing of benefits arising from the utilization of these resources. Adopted in 2010 in Nagoya, Japan, it entered into force on 12 October 2014.
    Dr. Cristiana Pașca Palmer, Exeutive Secretary of the Convention on Biological Diversity, said: “I congratulate the Government of Japan. The ratification of the Nagoya Protocol reaffirms the commitment of Japan towards one of the three objectives of the Convention on Biological Diversity: the fair and equitable sharing of benefits arising from their utilization, which contributes to equity and development.”
    Mr. Koichi Yamamoto, Minister of the Environment, Government of Japan, said: “It is an honor for the Government of Japan to deposit the Instrument of Acceptance of the Nagoya Protocol today. The Protocol is named after the host city of CBD-COP10 held in our country at which Japan contributed to its adoption as the Presidency. Since then, Japan has been supporting the implementation of the Protocol in developing countries through the Japan Biodiversity Fund and the Nagoya Protocol Implementation Fund. We are determined to continue contributing to the international implementation of the Protocol.”
