A Guide to Using the Working Draft ABS Management Tool

By IISD, Stratos Inc., Jorge Cabrera on January 30, 2006
This publication explains how to implement the draft Access and Benefit Sharing (ABS) Management Tool (ABS-MT). The draft ABS-MT was developed during 2003-04 by the IISD project team, with input from ABS experts and practitioners. The ABS-MT is a practical tool that seeks to help facilitate the negotiation and implementation of fair and equitable ABS agreements. It is NOT a policy document—but targeted at people involved in the day-to-day negotiation of ABS agreements, be they within companies, research organizations, communities or government agencies.
