The role of partnerships in unlocking BioTrade potential
MetadataShow full item record
BioTrade reflects many of the most complex challenges society faces today, especially in natural resourcebased developing economies. It can be of great value in overcoming the persistently incentivized misalignment between sustainable use of natural resources and economic growth, rural development and international trade. It is amidst these challenges that many opportunities for BioTrade lie. In seizing these, BioTrade can contribute to unlocking long-term development in line with the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda and SDGs (12, 15 and 17) (UNCTAD, 2015a; UNCTAD, 2016a). In this context, partnerships are being recognized as a fundamental element to foster cooperation among actors for achieving all SDGs. Similarly, partnerships will play an important role in BioTrade initiatives.
