Dr Morgera Speaks to Nature magazine about Nagoya Protocol

Dr Elisa Morgera, Senior Lecturer in Global Environmental Law, has been invited to share her views on the implementation of the Nagoya Protocol on Access to Genetic Resources and Benefit-sharing and its implications for the research community with Nature - the highly regarded international weekly magazine of science.

There may be uncertainty in the short term, with difficult negotiations and possible missteps, but the Protocol offers a way to rebuild trust. Those genuinely interested in the long-term viability and reputation of bio-based research and innovation would be well advised to constructively contribute to this process.
