Explainix – ABS simply explained

GeoMedia develops short video for capacity development against biopiracy.

The Nagoya Protocol and its binding regulations on Access to Genetic Resources and the Fair and Equitable Sharing of Benefits (ABS for short) are difficult to understand for laypeople. The topic also appears to be too abstract and too complicated for politicians, industrialists and representatives of other interest groups who need to deal with implementing the regulations. For this reason, GeoMedia - in co-operation with mj kreativ - produced a short, animated video (English / French / Spanish) for the ABS Capacity Development Initiative, which was commissioned by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). The video explains ABS and the Nagoya Protocol in five minutes and is already being successfully used at various events, conferences and workshops.
