BGCI has produced a Learning Package on Access and Benefit-Sharing (ABS) to support researchers and collection holders understand, and teach others about the international ABS framework and how this impacts on the work of collection-based institutions.

As well as suite of training materials, BGCI has also collected a number of examples and case studies of how ABS is being implemented by botanic gardens and related institutions around the world.

The Learning Package was developed as part of a Darwin Initiative project implemented by BGCI in Ethiopia.
