Regional Nodes

Regional Nodes

In close collaboration with the Secretariat of the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD), the CBD-BIOFIN Regional Nodes Platform enables countries to access the knowledge and tools generated through national BIOFIN implementation. More than 40 countries have benefitted from experience sharing and becoming familiar with the BIOFIN methodology, as many formally expressed interest to participate in the initiative. Several countries have progressed into full participation in BIOFIN through the Regional Nodes Platform.

Interested developing countries or countries with economies in transition that are not already implementing the BIOFIN process can access support from the Regional Nodes initiative. Some services, such as the global webinar series, are available for all countries.
