Biodiversity-Based Value Chains

Access and benefit-sharing for people and nature

Biodiversity is the foundation for BioTrade value chains. Access and benefit-sharing (ABS) helps to ensure that these value chains contribute to conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity, and ultimately trigger socio-economic development. In this context, the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH manages three projects hosted on this platform: The ABS Capacity Development Initiative, BioInnovation Africa and ABS- compliant Value Chains in South(ern) Africa (ABioSA).
