This activity supports an annual UK contribution to the Nagoya Protocol. The Nagoya Protocol is a supplementary, legally-binding agreement to the Convention on Biological Diversity. The Nagoya Protocol came into force in October 2014 and aims to fulfill the third objective of the CBD, namely access to genetic resources and the fair and equitable sharing of benefits arising out of their utilisation. The Nagoya Protocol was ratified on 22 February 2016 and it became a Party to the Protocol on 22 May 2016. Under the Protocol the UK is legally bound to promote access and benefit sharing of genetic resources through our ratification of the Protocol. We are also politically bound through the CBD's Aichi Biodiversity Targets and the UN's Sustainable Development Goals.
