A collaboration of key experts from around the globe representing nations with existing legal frameworks and nations in the midst of developing such regimes for the protection of Indigenous knowledge and culture.

The forum facilitated dialogue, discussion and an information exchange, bringing together government officials, decision makers, scholars, and especially Indigenous and local peoples’ representatives.

The forum highlighted concerns in Benefit Sharing and Informed Consent by Aboriginal peoples who hold traditional knowledge, and questioned the Common Heritage of Mankind concept which acts as a barrier to Indigenous management and control of Traditional Knowledge.
