1. The principles set out in this Annex basically derive from those set out in the Convention on Biological Diversity and the Rio Declaration, both of 1992, in the Constitution and in the current national legislation on matter.

2. The National Biodiversity Policy will be governed by the following principles:

I? biological diversity has intrinsic value. deserving respect regardless of their value to man or potential for human use;

II? the nations have the sovereign right to explore their own biological resources, according to their environment and development policies;

Ill? the nations are responsible for the conservation of their biodiversity and for ensuring that activities under their jurisdiction or control do not cause harm in the environment and biodiversity of other nations or areas beyond the limits of jurisdiction national;

IV? conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity are a common concern for humanity, but with differentiated responsibilities, with the developed countries the aport of new and additional financial resources and the facilitation of access appropriate to the pertinent technologies to meet the needs of developing countries;

V? all have a right to the ecologically balanced environment. common use goods of the people and essential to the sadia quality of life, imponing, to the Public Power and the collectivity, the duty to defend it and to preserve it for the present and future generations;

Vl? the objectives of manhandling of soils, waters and biological resources are a matter of choice of society, and should involve all relevant sectors of society and all scientific disciplines and consider all relevant forms of information, including scientific, traditional and local knowledge, innovations and customs;

Vll? the maintenance of biodiversity is essential for the evolution and maintenance of the systems necessary to the life of the biosphere and for so much it is necessary to ensure and promote the sexuated and cross breeding capacity of the organisms;

V Ill? where there is consistent scientific evidence of serious and irreversible risk to biological diversity; the Public Power will determine cost-effective measures in terms of cost to prevent environmental degradation;

IX? the internalization of environmental costs and the use of economic instruments will be promoted taking into account the principle that the polluter should, in principle, bear the cost of pollution, with due respect for the public interest and without distorting trade and international investments:

X? the installation of potentially causative work or activity of significant degradation of the environment is to be preceded by prior environmental impact study, the one that will give publicity:

XI? the man is part of nature and is present in the different Brazilian ecosystems more than ten thousand years ago, and all these ecosystems have been and are being changed by it in greater or lesser scale;

XII? maintaining national cultural diversity is important for plurality of values in the society in relation to biodiversity, with indigenous peoples, quilombolas and other local communities playing an important role in the conservation and the sustainable use of Brazilian biodiversity;

XIII? shares related to access to traditional knowledge associated with biodiversity should transcend with informed prior consent of the indigenous peoples, the quilombolas and the other local communities:

XIV? the value of use of biodiversity is determined by cultural values and includes direct and indirect use value, of choice of future use and, still, intrinsic value, including ecological, genetic, social, economic, scientific, educational values, cultural, recreational and aesthetic;

XV? the conservation and sustainable use of bio-diversity should contribute to economic and social development and poverty eradication;

XVI? management of ecosystems should seek the appropriate balance between conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity, and ecosystems should be managed within the limits of their functioning;

XVII? ecosystems should be understood and manhandled in an economic context, objecting to:

a) reduce market distortions that negatively affect biodiversity;

b) promote incentives for the conservation of biodiversity and its sustainable use; and

c) internalize costs and benefits in a given ecosystem as much as possible;

XVIII? the research. ex situ conservation and value aggregation on components of Brazilian biodiversity should be carried out preferentially in the country, welcoming international cooperation initiatives, respected interests, and coordination national;

XIX? national biodiversity management actions should establish synergies and integrated actions with conventions, treaties and international agreements related to the theme of biodiversity management; and

3. The National Biodiversity Policy applies to the components of biological diversity located in the areas under national jurisdiction, including the national territory, the continental shelf and the exclusive economic zone; and to the processes and activities carried out under its jurisdiction or control, regardless of where its effects occur, within the area under national jurisdiction or beyond the limits of this.

4. The National Biodiversity Policy will be governed by the following guidelines:

I? to establish cooperation with other nations, directly or, where necessary, by competent international agreements and organizations, with respect to areas beyond national jurisdiction, in particular in the border areas, in the Antarctic, in the high-sea and in the large marine funds and in relation to migratory species, and in other mummy accents of interest, for the conservation and sustainable use of biological diversity

II? the national conservation effort and the sustainable use of biological diversity should be integrated into relevant sectoral or intersectoral plans, programmes and policies in a complementary and harmonic manner;

III? substantial investments are needed to conserve the biological diversity of which they will result consequently, environmental, economic and social benefits;

IV? it is vital to predict, prevent and combat at the origin the causes of the sensitive reduction or loss of biological diversity;

V? sustainability of the use of components of biodiversity should be determined from the economic, social and environmental point of view, especially as to the maintenance of biodiversity;

VI? management of ecosystems should be decentralized to the appropriate level and ecosystem managers should consider the current and potential effects of their activities on neighboring ecosystems and others:

VII? management of ecosystems should be implemented at the appropriate spatial and temporal scales and the goals for ecosystem management should be established in the long term, recognizing that changes are inevitable.

VIII? management of ecosystems should focus on structures, processes and functional relationships within ecosystems, use adaptive managerial practices, and ensure intersectoral cooperation;

IX? to create conditions for allowing access to genetic resources and for environmentally sound use of these by other countries that are Contracting Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity, avoiding the imposition of restrictions contrary to the objectives of the Convention.
