The aim of the Nagoya Protocol on access to genetic resources and fair and equitable sharing of benefits arising out of their utilization to the Convention on biological diversity is to ensure fair and equitable sharing of benefits arising out of the utilization of genetic resources which includes any material of plant, animal, microbial or other origin containing functional units of heredity and of actual or potential value, and hence the entire biological diversity of the Republic of Belarus. These are plants, animals, strains of microorganisms, collections of varieties and seeds, agricultural crops, etc.

In fact, the compliance by a country with the provisions of the Nagoya Protocol means the guaranteed receipt of benefits arising from the utilization of genetic resources of own country and willingness to accordingly provide benefits to the countries that supply genetic resources.
