- This article addresses the benefit-sharing concept as a potential emerging principle in international sustainable development law. It reviews and studies how benefit sharing is treated in different international law regimens including the Convention on Biological Diversity and its Nagoya Protocol and other Rio Conventions, the International Treaty on Plant Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture, Law of the Sea, selected regional agreements and ongoing international processes such as the negotiation of an international instrument for the conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity in areas beyond national jurisdiction (ABNJs). Finally some suggestions are provided for a future research agenda on this issue.
