The locus of the conduct was involved two nations which impacted to the State’s obligation to protect the rights of its people. The fact that Brazil has already eancted the provision of access and benefit sharing but Paraguay has not due its unawareness that such commercial benefit may arise from the utilization of genetic resources take into account that if it requires for legal enforcement. The implementation of access and benefit sharing provision will ensure the legal protection for its people with optimal supervision.
