Legal Analysis of the First Meeting of the Working Group on Access to Genetic Resources

For this study the results of the meeting of the Ad Hoc Working Group on access and benefit sharing of genetic resources, held in Bonn in October 2001, were analysed. The study was compiled in order to prepare the German negotiating position for the Sixth Meeting of the Conference of the Parties of the Convention on Biological Diversity. The recommendations made in this study are based on an assessment of Germany's interests in access and benefit sharing of genetic resources.
