Access and Benefit Sharing Learning Modules

BGCI, in collaboration with the Royal Botanic Gardens Kew, has created a suite of learning modules on access and benefit sharing, essential for those working in botanic gardens. The modules below will take you step by step through the role of the CBD, the history of the Nagoya Protocol and important articles of the Protocol, as well as providing essential information for preparation and practical implementation. After every module there is a quick quiz to test your knowledge.

These modules were written by China Williams and Natasha Ali (RBG Kew) and Kate Davis (BGCI’s ABS Advisor).

BGCI is grateful for the support of the Convention on Biological Diversity and The Japan Biodiversity Fund which allowed the development of these learning modules.
