BERNAL CAMARGO, Diana Rocío. Access to genetic resources in indigenous peoples and the Convention on Biological Diversity. Civilizar [online]. 2013, vol.13, n.24, pp.47-62. ISSN 1657-8953.

After the Convention on Biological Diversity a deepening debate is taking place concerning the protection of genetic resources and traditional knowledge of indigenous peoples, which involves a discussion about the application of biotechnology and its impact on the protection of life and environment, and an analysis of the participation of these in the process of developing strategies to protect their resources and traditional knowledge, which gives rise to legal pluralism from the development of the different Conferences of the Parties, which today allows for a more comprehensive regulatory framework and a possibility of its strengthening.

Keywords : Convention on Biological Diversity; genetic resources; indigenous peoples.
