About the Seminar
GH Raisoni University, Saikheda with GH Raisoni Law College, Nagpur and Maharashtra State Biodiversity Board, Nagpur is organising a 2-Day International seminar on ‘Resolution of Access Benefit Sharing via Alternative Dispute Resolution with reference to Bio-Diversity Act 2002’ on October 23rd and 24th, 2021.
All the interested students and professionals are invited to submit their scholarly research papers on any of the following sub-themes on or before October 18.
The two-day International Seminar endeavours to cover the emerging issues and challenges faced while settlement of Access Benefit Sharing (ABS) via Biodiversity Act 2002, through Alternative Dispute Resolution Techniques in India.
The need for alternatives to the formal legal system has engaged the attention of the legal fraternity, comprising judges, lawyers and law researchers for several decades now. This has for long been integral to the process of judicial reform and signifying the access to justice approach.
While keeping the growth of India’s economic development coupled with the renewed confidence of foreign investors to invest in India, it has become important to provide a swifter justice delivery system to resolve a commercial dispute. For a country like India with its burgeoning cases waiting to be disposed of with limited judicial outreach, arbitration can be a valuable option to resolve the dispute.
With the diversity of India’s richness in plant species, and 10 distinct biogeography zones as well as 2 of the world’s biodiversity hotspots, conditions and of the various ethnic populations living in India, the country has become an important centre of diversity of many domesticated species, including various cereals, millets, vegetables, temperate and tropical fruits, fibre crops, medicinal and aromatic plants.
Countries have sovereign rights over the genetic resources found on their territory. When benefits arise from research or development on genetic resources, including when it leads to the commercial use of a developed product, these benefits should be shared fairly and equitably with the country providing these resources.
Each generation has the right to inherit the same diversity in natural and cultural resources enjoyed by the previous generations and to have equitable access to the use and benefits of these resources. At the same time, the present generation is the custodian of the planet for future generations, obliged to conserve this legacy so that future generations may also enjoy these same rights. Intergenerational equity extends the scope of social justice into the future.
