I am doing a project on biodiversity conservation and related IP issues in
China. And my specific research area is Fujian Province which is a southern
coast province with a massive amount of biological diversity. My work is mainly
to research the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) and its implementation
in China. Also, I am trying to find out the current situation of the
conservation of genetic resources and traditional knowledge, because those are
highly related to IP. Most importantly, the legislation and implementation of
access and benefit-sharing (ABS) step is the core issue of this project.

Hopefully, by doing individual research and being in contact with some people
in this field, particularly somebody on site in China, I can have a general
prospect one this topic, and be able to give some practical and constructive
suggestion on things which have yet to be done or improved, especially in ABS
of genetic resources and traditional knowledge.
