The Nagoya Protocol Implementation Fund is a new landmark fund to help developing countries ratify and implement a key international agreement to conserve and sustainably use biodiversity. Establishment of the Nagoya Protocol Implementation Fund came after the Nagoya Protocol on Access to Genetic Resources and the Fair and Equitable Sharing of Benefits Arising from their Utilization was opened for signature at the United Nations headquarters in New York. The Nagoya Protocol establishes the ground rules for how nations should cooperate to access and to share the many benefits that come from the sustainable utilization of genetic resources of all living organisms. The fund will be operated by GEF.
