This study has been prepared as a scientific contribution to the Second Meeting of the Ad Hoc Open-ended Working Group on Access and Benefit-Sharing (ABS), which will be held in Montreal, Canada, from December 1 to 5, 2003. The authors take as their common starting point the view that the Contracting Parties of the Convention on Biological Diversity should use the on-going process to develop and implement an international regime to promote and safeguard the fair and equitable sharing of benefits arising out of the utilization of genetic resources with a view to increasing the effectiveness of ABS as an instrument of poverty alleviation. As elaborated in this study, ABS can contribute to achieving these goals if the international community takes its political statements seriously and develops an ABS regime that simultaneously supports the goals of the Convention on Biological Diversity.
