Organized by the UN Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD), the IV BioTrade Congress will be held during the 2016 Biodiversity and Business Forum, to take place in parallel to the High-Level Segment of the 13th session of the Conference of the Parties (COP 13) to the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD). Focusing on trade as a tool to mainstream biodiversity into different sectors, the Congress will provide case studies demonstrating challenges, opportunities, lessons learned and best practices of how sustainable use and trade in biodiversity has generated livelihoods benefits for rural communities; has contributed to conserve species and ecosystems; and has enhanced the bottom-line of industries and prosperity for developing countries.
