Abstract

The legislative, administrative and policy measures regarding biological diversity, which is implemented appropriately and as far as possible in accordance with the principles of the Convention on Biological Diversity, will promote the conservation and sustainable use of plant genetic resources. It will also promote accessing, equitable using and fair benefit sharing of plant genetic resources. The research found that Thai laws regarding the conservation and the sustainable use of plant genetic resources in Thailand still do not fulfill the purposes and the principles of conservation and sustainable use of plant genetic resources provided under the Convention on biological diversity. Therefore, in order to fulfil that purposes, there are two main recommendations for Thailand. Firstly, Enacting the national law on biological diversity, which contains appropriately and as far as possible the principles and guidelines in accordance with the principles of the Convention on Biological diversity. Secondly, a new organization should be established to administer the accessing, benefit sharing and the use of biological diversity including plant genetic resources under the national law.
