Uganda. (2007). Guidelines for access to genetic resources and distribution of benefits in Uganda. The GEF project “Development and production of natural dyes in the Colombian region of Chocé for the food, cosmetic and body care industries in accordance with the provisions of the Nagoya Protocol” facilitated the negotiation of a pioneering agreement on access and sharing of benefits between users and suppliers of a genetic resource of genipa americana for the production of a blue dye. In 2018, the Colombian biotech company that developed the invention will begin sharing royalties with raw material suppliers. Among the benefits that this company already shares are improved livelihoods for local communities and sustainable management of 750 hectares of rainforest. 2.1.1. This act only takes effect if an access authorization is granted to the access party for the proposed access to the biological resources covered by the facts. In the collections, there were two answers. Half of the collections stated that, in order to ensure legal certainty, it is essential to distribute services obligatory, while the other half argued that many of the benefits of collection operations cannot be predicted in advance and can be provided for decades; a flexible system is more appropriate.
Dominican Republic. (2018). Regulations on Access to Genetic Resources and the Distribution of Services (ABS). This type of benefit sharing is perceived as very positive by the majority of participants in the supplier countries. Some interest groups argued that this would be the most important type of benefit sharing, given that supplier countries could value their own genetic resources, which they saw as the true meaning of the UNWTO international framework. However, they acknowledged that it would bear a limited burden to ensure that these activities would be welcomed by those who can use them. Of all the other monetary utility options, respondents representing industrial users are the most supportive of this option. One respondent suggested that this type of benefit sharing would go to those who really need it, and another argued that it was a very useful option to strengthen the sector`s relationship with the supplier country, as they would be directly able to see the benefits of genetic resource research and development.
