BioTrade sectors
For beneficiary countries working with BioTrade initiatives, a broad variety of products and services can be sustainably derived from their rich biodiversity (Table 1.1). Within each sector, efforts and resources are prioritized and channelled into areas where major social, environmental and economic impacts need to be achieved. The BT P&C are used to guide interventions on the ground and several tools, methodologies and protocols have been produced to support partners and programme beneficiaries (e.g. SMEs, community based associations) in implementation.
BioTrade capacity and skills development
UNCTAD and its partners have focused on enhancing the capacities and skills of BioTrade practitioners for engaging in sustainable sourcing, access and benefit sharing (ABS) and trade in value added products and services. Such training may include legal and technical advice relevant to BioTrade activities including the regional and national implementation of regulations, good practices, enhancing harvesting and processing methods and documentation. A master’s degree programme and online courses have also been developed and implemented by the Catholic University in Peru and UNCTAD, among others, in addition to the development of tools, guidelines, training material and documents.
