Description: The debates on Digital Sequence Information on Genetic Resources (DSI) and access and benefit-sharing under the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) and the Nagoya Protocol (NP) remain challenging. Balancing open access and fair benefit-sharing requires thinking outside the box to find innovative solutions that bridge the gap between these two important priorities. The paper offers 5 ideas for how this could be achieved. The webinar is hosted by the WiLDSI project, an interdisciplinary research project funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) led by the Leibniz Institutes DSMZ and IPK Gatersleben to research viable open access benefit-sharing policy options for DSI and proactively involve scientific stakeholders.
