The CaBOL project is featured in a publication about 20 ABS partnerships from different regions of the world. Based on these partnerships, which involve the use of genetic resources for commercial or scientific purposes, the publication highlights lessons learned, emerging good practices and contributions to the SDGs. The publication is a first document of a project carried out by Geo Media, the Institute for Biodiversity Network (IBN) and the Union for Ethical BioTrade (UEBT). This research project focusses on how the access to genetic resources and benefit-sharing (ABS) contributes to conservation and sustainable use, as well as to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
