Switzerland, which plays a leading role in the use of genetic resources, and which has ratified the two conventions, has a particular responsibility. Public Eye is active in Switzerland, and at international level, in favour of an effective and coherent sharing of gains arising from the use of genetic resources. Through our investigative work and advocacy we reveal cases of biopiracy and propose concrete solutions to put a stop to these abuses, by the implementation of ratified treaties and the reinforcement of these instruments.
