The human-caused loss of biodiversity and species loss will drive the negotiations of the Global Biodiversity Framework, which will enable the creation of a framework for action for the objectives of the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) for the next 10 years. In order to achieve this framework, compromises are expected from all involved parties, which has led to a science- and policy-based process within the CBD to consider the inclusion of so-called "digital sequence information" (DSI, sequence data) under the CBD framework.
The first phase of the project was to identify, assess, and offer policymakers approaches with which both open access to sequence data in public databases can be enabled and at the same time a sustainable benefit sharing can be created. This led to the October 2020 white paper and establishment of the on-going international DSI Scientific Network. In the next phase, policy options will continue to be further analyze, compared and contrasted, and further analysis into quantification of benefit-sharing from DSI will be conducted. The candidate will coordinate with the project leader and steering committee to synthesize several work streams into a cohesive project and coordinated outcomes.
