Kabir Bavikatte (Natural Justice) participated in an informal meeting from 25-26 March 2013 in Tokyo, Japan. The meeting was organized by the Japanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs in collaboration with the Secretariat of the Convention on Biological Diversity and the United Nations University Institute of Advanced Studies. It included discussions on Articles 19 and 20 of the Nagoya Protocol on Access and Benefit Sharing, namely, model contractual clauses, and codes of conduct, guidelines and best practices and/or standards, respectively.

With Articles 19 and 20 being one of the focal topics to be addressed at the upcoming third meeting of the Intergovernmental Committee for the Nagoya Protocol (ICNP3), this informal meeting aimed to facilitate a dedicated discussion on these items among experts from around the world. The outcomes of this meeting would provide valuable inputs to the discussion at the ICNP3.
