Brazilian Biodiversity Access Regulations – Webinar 29 November



Brazil has the most biodiversity of any country in the world thanks to its six varied biomes: Amazonia, Pantanal, Cerrado, Caatinga, Pampa and Mata Atlantica. Hundreds of natural ingredients are sourced in Brazil from these diverse biomes, many of which are used by the cosmetic industry. In 2001, Brazil, as a signatory to the Nagoya Protocol, issued regulations for the protection and sustainable exploration of its irreplaceable genetic heritage. João Hansen’s presentation on Wednesday 29 / Thursday 30 November will explain the most current regulations to be followed in order to access the biodiversity of Brazil’s biomes.
