As the international NGO Genetic Resources Action International (GRAIN) points out in "Biodiversity for Sale", the problems with this approach are that it ignores the benefits communities themselves derive from biodiversity; it may be unworkable when it is difficult to identify an individual group with whom to "do business", or worse yet, it may create conflict by contracting with one group/community and not another, even though the knowledge or resource of interest might be widely shared.
