Deadline:

Forum for Law, Environment, Development and Governance (FLEDGE) and Foundation for Ecological Security (FES) invite you to the Webinar on "Knowledge Commons: Legal and Policy Issues" to be held on March 05, 2019 at 15:00 HRS (IST) - 10.30 CET

Access to information as a right has gained credence in several countries around the world since the 1990s. That data is considered as the next ‘oil’ is no surprise, given its importance in all aspects of governance. Given the issues and levels of misunderstanding related to collecting,analysing and using biodiversity data and information, this Webinar will assess the nature and trends of biodiversity data and information sharing, including traditional knowledge, globally and select few countries, and related legal provisions for protection, use and sharing of benefits of use.

The Webinar is a part of FES’ focus on 'Promise of Commons'. The Panelists for the Webinar are Dr. Balakrishna Pisupati and Ms Shyama Kuriakose.
