Jamaica: Senate approves bill to protect plant genetics

The following is an excerpt.

THE Senate on Friday passed the Bill providing for the protection of Jamaica’s plant genetic resources for food and agriculture.

The Bill, short-titled the Protection of Plant Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture Act, gives effect to Government’s decision to enact legislation to facilitate the country’s compliance with the International Treaty on Plant Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture, which was approved by the United Nations in November 2003, and came into force the following year. Jamaica became a signatory in 2006.
