Abstract: The concept of risk requires preventative measures as well as measures of liability and redress in the case that damage is actually caused. The Cartagena Protocol on Biosafety limits itself in Article 27 to the establishment of a mandate for the elaboration of norms and procedures in regard to liability and redress. The development of this Article 27 requires firstly a definition of the concept of damage to the conservation and sustainable use of biological diversity, secondly a survey of the extent of damages to health, and the consideration of socioeconomic aspects. With this aim, we will analyse the concept of damage in the international instruments which deal with this material, taking into account levels of implantation. We will conclude by presenting the definition of damage in the context of the tasks to develop the content of the Article 27 determining an administrative focus as regards the liability of the status and the concept of damage for a civil liability fitting with national rights. - La idea de riesgo requiere tanto medidas de prevención como de responsabilidad y compensación en el supuesto de que se origine un daño.

Con esta finalidad, se analiza la idea de daño en los instrumentos internacionales que abordan esta materia teniendo presente su grado de implantación. Concluye exponiendo la definición de daño en el marco de los trabajos de desarrollo del artículo 27 determinando un enfoque administrativo sobre la responsabilidad de los Estados y una noción de daño para una responsabilidad civil acorde con los derechos nacionales
