In collaboration with the ABS Initiative the Secretariat of the Pacific Regional Environment Programme (SPREP) organized national consultations and briefing meetings in Samoa in March 2012. These meetings were attended by representatives of the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment, the Scientific Research Organization of Samoa, the Secretariat of the Convention on Biological Diversity (SCBD) and the Institute of Advanced Science of the United Nations University (UNU/IAS).

Samoa hosted the 2nd Pacific ABS Workshop that served mainly to develop road maps for ratification and implementation of the Nagoya Protocol.
