The ABS Initiative is supporting an ABS approach for protected areas contributing to an innovative funding strategy for the world-renowned Taï National Park. Partners are the French National Museum of Natural History (MNHN), the Environment Ministry in Côte d’Ivoire, the national protected areas agency OIPR and the bilateral GIZ-implemented programme PRODEMIR. Goals are the integration of ABS into the management of the park, the repatriation of biodiversity data from Taï Park and other areas by MNHN and the use of this data to enhance the management of protected areas and to engage with potential commercial users.

Côte d’Ivoire ratified the Nagoya Protocol in September 2013.
