Dr Maureen Wolfson

Dr Maureen Wolfson Experience Obtained a PhD in Botany from the University of the Witwatersrand. Dr Wolfson is currently the Director of Research and Scientific Services at the NBI. She represented the NBI in an International Project to develop guidelines for access to genetic resources and benefit-sharing for Botanical Gardens funded by DIFID. She represented South Africa on the Expert Panel on Access to Genetic Resources and Benefit-sharing which contributed to the development of the Bonn Guidelines accepted at the 6th Conference of the Parties of the Convention on Biological Diversity. She currently serves, with representatives from the nine provinces and South African National Parks, on the National Biodiversity Working Group, chaired by the Department of Environmental Affairs and Tourism and on the National Plant Genetic Resources Committee chaired by the National Department of Agriculture. She is the project manager of a South African national project on access and benefit-sharing, funded by the Global Environment Facility (GEF), which will hopefully lead to regional harmonisation of legislation on access and benefit-sharing. Her present duties include the development of policies, procedures and codes of conduct for the NBI on access and benefit-sharing and Intellectual Property and assisting in the development of material transfer and benefit-sharing agreements and other agreements which relate to the access to biodiversity, particularly those related to IP. She is also responsible for liaising with and advising provincial conservation agencies on ABS matters.
