The Bio-Bridge Initiative

Upcoming Events

Recent Events

The Bio-Bridge Initiative (BBI) is an overarching programme focused on catalyzing and facilitating technical and scientific cooperation (TSC) among Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) and to its Protocols on biosafety (Cartagena Protocol) and on access and benefit-sharing (Nagoya Protocol).

BBI facilitates TSC among Parties by:
  • linking Parties that have specific technical and scientific needs with Parties or institutions that are able to provide the necessary technical support and resources to meet those needs through mutual partnerships; and
  • creating a space for countries and institutions to share knowledge, good practices and lessons learned with each other.

In accordance with decision XII/2, BBI focuses particularly on providing support to developing countries and countries with economies in transition.
