Thus, the Cartagena Protocol on Biosafety was adopted on 22 January 2000 at the first extraordinary meeting of the Conference of the Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity held in Montreal, Canada. In accordance with the precautionary approach contained in Principle 15 of the Rio Declaration on Environment and Development, the objective of this Protocol is to contribute to ensuring an adequate level of protection in the field of safe transfer, handling and use of living modified organisms resulting from modern biotechnology that may have adverse effects on conservation and sustainable use of biological diversity, taking into account risks to human health and specifically focusing on transboundary movements. Signing of the Protocol is believed to be a very significant step because it establishes international regulatory framework for reconciliation of the relevant commercial needs and environment protection in the biotechnological industry. Thus, the Protocol creates favorable environment for ecologically feasible modern biotechnology application, making possible to find the balance between use of the benefits from the potential offered by biotechnology and minimizing the risks for the environment and human health at the same time.
The Republic of Moldova ratified the Convention on biological diversity in 1995 and the Cartagena Protocol on Biosafety in 2002. According to the commitments made under the above documents, the Ministry of Ecology and Natural Resources has taken numerous steps to ensure compliance with provisions of the above international documents. In particular, the documents, which have been developed and approved include: The First National Biological Diversity Report, the National Strategy and Action Plan in the field of Biological Diversity, and the Law on Biosafety. At present the Republic of Moldova is making practical steps to strengthen its capacity in the field of biosafety through development of the national biosafety framework and contributes to the process of raising public awareness of the relevant issues.
