The Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) is a global commitment to adopt national measures that allow access to biological resources between nations, and facilitate the sharing of benefits from utilizing those resources. Research by Dr Kamalesh Adhikari examines the process by which Nepal’s access and benefit sharing law is being developed and the way in which different stakeholders negotiate their rights. As a case study, Nepal offers important lessons for countries who are yet to develop similar laws, but must do so in the near future.
