BioTrade Congress I

poster1-congress1.jpgBiodiversity - The Life of the Green Economy

18 June 2012. 08.30-19.00. Rio de Janeiro

BioTrade is one of the promising green economic sectors where developing countries have demonstrated a leadership role. BioTrade is the type of trade that supports biodiversity objectives while providing a source of income for local development.

Sixteen years after UNCTAD launched the BioTrade Initiative with the aim of promoting trade and investment in biodiversity as a means of furthering sustainable development, a number of countries, regions and national and international stakeholders have made remarkable progress in embracing BioTrade concepts and principles as integral parts of their strategies. Furthermore, BioTrade is being recognized as a tool to address poverty alleviation and to support sustainable livelihoods in developing countries.

Recognising that BioTrade is one of the pillars for achieving biodiversity conservation, sustainable use as well as post-conflict reintegration efforts, the First Global BioTrade Congress was conceived as a platform where BioTrade and biodiversity stakeholders could share their experiences and lessons learned, and establish further cooperation in implementing sustainable practices on the path to "greening" biodiversity-based sectors.
