The Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) is an international legally binding treaty that entered into force in 1993. The Convention has 3 goals being the conservation of biological diversity, the sustainable use of its components, and the fair and equitable sharing of benefits arising from the use of genetic resources.

In October 2012, the "Save Our Rice" Campaign attended the Sixth meeting of the Conference of the Parties to the CBD serving as the Meeting of the Parties to the Cartagena Protocol (COP/MOP 6) in Hyderabad, India. The issue of corporate accountability especially on genetically-modified (GM) technologies in food and agriculture based on the Permanent People's Tribunal (PPT) was highlighted through a side event.
