Welcome to the Biosafety Capacity-Building Portal, a virtual platform established to facilitate online discussions and exchange of information relating to capacity-building for the effective implementation of the Cartagena Protocol on Biosafety. Article 22
of the Protocol requires Parties to cooperate in the development and/or strengthening of human resources and institutional capacities in biosafety, including biotechnology to the extent that it is required for biosafety, for the purpose of ensuring the effective implementation of the Protocol.
The Capacity-Building Portal comprises four main sections:
- The Capacity-Building Online Forums
- The Biosafety Education Online Forums
- The Capacity-Building Collaborative Network, and
- The Restricted workspaces for specific groups.
The online forums comprise online discussion groups and real-time conferences.
