ACCESS TO PGR, THE

ACCESS TO PGR, THE SHARING OF BENEFITS ARISING OUT OF THEIR UTILIZATION AND THE REALIZATION OF FARMERS' RIGHTS avoids the issue of ownership entirely, by focusing on terms of access and provisions for benefit-sharing. The recognition of national sovereignty over genetic resources implies that countries have the power to manage those resources and to regulate access to them, but it does not address the issue of ownership per se. While in many countries legal ownership of genetic resources still follows the ownership of land and the biological resources on that land, an increasing number of countries are affirming the separate ownership of genetic resources by the State. Decision 391 of the Andean Community, for example, provides that genetic resources are the property or heritage of the nation or state. Article 5 of the Ethiopian Proclamation No. 482 of 2006 provides that “the ownership of genetic resources shall be vested in the state and the Ethiopian people”. The practical consequences of these ownership claims are as yet unclear. Another obstacle frequently cited by countries in their national reports (more than 35 countries) is the lack of the necessary multidisciplinary scientific, institutional and legal capacity to develop a satisfactory system of ABS, given the interrelated dimensions of access, benefit-sharing, local community rights and traditional knowledge and the connected problems of IP and economic development. 8 Other difficulties include the overlapping competences of different ministries. The implementation of the ITPGRFA, for example, normally requires coordination between the Ministry responsible for agricultural policies and that responsible for environmental matters, as well as coordination with ministries responsible for trade, land, forests and national parks where access to PGRFA in situ is concerned. In the case of federal states or similar decentralized governmental systems, the allocation of responsibilities between a central or federal government and its individual states, regions or provinces may also provide a challenge. In Malaysia, for example, the difficulties caused by the division of responsibilities between the state and federal authorities with respect to genetic resources are specifically noted in the 1998 National Policy on Biological Diversity (paragraphs 16-20). The Malaysia country report notes that while national legislation on ABS was being developed, the States of Sabah and Sarawak had their own process underway which resulted in two state enactments on this matter. In Australia, discussions are in progress between the national government and states regarding the way in which Australia will implement the ITPGRFA. In Brazil, competence over genetic resources is shared at both federal and state levels and state laws have been enacted on access to genetic resources. 9 The federal government is responsible for establishing standards and granting import and export permits. 7.3.3.2 National and regional implementation of access and benefit-sharing under the ITPGRFA Placing of PGRFA in the MLS: to date, the major collections formally placed in the MLS are those held by the international institutions that have signed agreements with the Governing Body of the ITPGRFA. 10 As far as national collections are concerned, Article 11.2 of the ITPGRFA provides that PGRFA of crops and forages listed in its Annex 1 that are under the management and control of the Contracting Parties and in the public domain, are to be included automatically in the MLS. Other holders of PGRFA listed in Annex 1 are invited to place them in the MLS and Contracting Parties agree to take appropriate measures to encourage them to do so. While the ITPGRFA itself does not clearly and explicitly place an obligation on Contracting Parties to disseminate information on the material included automatically or voluntarily in the MLS, it is clear that the accessibility of such material will depend, in practice, on the relevant information being available. For this purpose, the ITPGRFA Secretariat has formally requested Contracting Parties to provide information on the materials within the MLS in their jurisdictions. 11 Updated information on the accessions included in the MLS is available at the Secretariat of the ITPGRFA. 12 A number of countries, including both developed and developing countries, as well as countries with economies in transition, have provided information on material included in the MLS. 13 The material includes some PGRFA held by private entities including, for example, at least two private breeders’ associations in France. 14 EURISCO, the European catalogue of ex situ PGR collections, 171

CHAPTER 7 has been adapted to incorporate the inclusion of each accession in the MLS. From the information available, it appears that there may be differences in the interpretation of the criteria of ‘under the management and control of Contracting Parties’ and ‘in the public domain’. This matter may need to be referred to the Governing Body for clarification. In the meantime, it appears that wide use is being made of the persuasive powers of governments to encourage holders of nongovernmental collections of Annex 1 PGRFA to place their collections in the MLS. 15 Implementing the MLS through administrative measures: to date a number of countries are choosing to implement the MLS of the ITPGRFA through administrative measures rather than through the adoption of new national legislation. This is the case, for example, in both Germany and the Netherlands. The implementation of the MLS in Germany is illustrative of the type of administrative measures taken. Implementing the MLS through legislative measures: while some countries consider that the MLS can be implemented solely through administrative measures, other countries have found that more formal legislative action may be necessary, in order to provide legal space in which the implementation can operate, provide for legal authority for the implementation of the system and/or provide legal certainty as to the procedures to be followed. The need to provide legal space may be necessary where legislation is already in place for the implementation of ABS procedures under the CBD. Legislative action in this context may be limited to the recognition that ABS under the MLS should follow different and simplified procedures, leaving those procedures to be defined by administrative measures or by further legislative action, or else it may enter into the detailed procedures applicable as with other genetic resources or uses. The legislation of Ethiopia is one example of the first approach, where the legislation provides that access to genetic resources under an MLS is to be made in accordance with the procedure specified in the MLS and in accordance with future regulations to be issued on the subject. 16 There are to date no instances of national legislation that set 172 THE SECOND REPORT ON THE STATE OF THE WORLD’S PGRFA out detailed procedures for dealing with ABS under the MLS. It is known however that a number of countries are considering, or in the process of drafting, such legislation, whether as part of stand-alone legislation on PGRFA, or in the context of national legislation on genetic resources in general. 17 Regional cooperation in the implementation of the MLS: reference has already been made to regional initiatives in the implementation of ABS. A number of regions are also taking cooperative action for the implementation of the MLS. One such initiative is that launched by the Arab Organization for Agricultural Development (AOAD) with the support of FAO and Bioversity International for the development of guidelines and model legislation on the implementation of the ITPGRFA and its MLS in the countries of the Near East region. A workshop held in Cairo in March/ April 2009 agreed on a roadmap for the development of the guidelines and their implementation in selected countries in the region. A second example is the European initiative to establish AEGIS. This system, which has been developed within the framework of the ECPGR, would provide for the establishment of a European Collection, consisting of selected accessions designated by the individual countries. Material designated as part of the European Collection would continue to be conserved in the individual genebanks concerned, but would be maintained in accordance with agreed quality standards and would be made freely available, both within Europe and outside, in accordance with the terms and conditions set out in the ITPGRFA using the SMTA. In so doing, the countries plan to share responsibilities relating to the conservation and sustainable use of PGRFA and thus to develop a more efficient regional system in Europe. Both Annex 1 and non-Annex 1 materials can be designated as part of the European Collection. 18 A third regional: initiative is that underway in the Pacific Region, where the Pacific Island countries have agreed to make Annex 1 material available through their regional genebank, CePaCT, run by the SPC. The SPC is in the process of concluding an Agreement with the Governing Body under Article 15.5 of the ITPGRFA, placing the regional germplasm collection within the purview of the ITPGRFA.
