Abstract

This chapter has three objectives: (1) to explain the concept and context for access and benefit-sharing (ABS) in Canada, (2) to outline the undergirding methodology and process for the research that resulted in this book and (3) to provide a concise annotation of the component chapters and demonstrate their cohesiveness in tackling the global challenge of ABS over genetic resources and associated traditional knowledge through Canadian insights.
