NATURAL CAPITAL ACCOUNTING, ACCESS AND BENEFIT SHARING, DIGITAL SEQUENCE INFORMATION: FRUITFUL WORKSHOP IN UGANDA

Participants engaged in a first discussion on national plans in view of COP15 and presented three technical issues: access and benefit sharing (ABS) and digital sequence information (DSI) as well as natural capital accounting.

P2020 – August 19, 2019 ABS, DSI, Expertise, Uganda.

Following exchanges with Mr Francis Ogwal from the National Environment Management Authority – NEMA, who is also the National Focal Point for the CBD and Co-Chair of the Open-Ended Working Group on the post-2020 process, the idea was born to hold a series of workshops in Uganda.

These may give representatives of key institutions and organizations a space to work together towards showcasing Uganda’s ambition and successes in the protection and sustainable use of biodiversity nationally, but also as a contribution to the Post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework.

The first workshop provided an overview over the status quo of negotiations and technical aspects related to Natural Capital Accounting (NCA), Access and Benefit Sharing (ABS) and Digital Sequence Information (DSI) on genetic resources. Highly experienced participants, from NEMA, the Plant Genetic Resource Center, the Wildlife Authority, the National Forestry Resources Research Institute, the National Council for Science and Technology, IUCN and the Animal Genetic Resource Centre engaged with experts from the Austrian Natural History Museum, UN Environment, the British Natural History Museum and the Austrian Environment Agency under the moderation of a project team member.

The participants embraced the initiative and will operationalize the next workshops to adapt them to Uganda’s specific needs and to ensure its results can serve as a starting point to continue and intensify the excellent work done until now for nature and the Ugandan people.
