Technical and Scientific Cooperation

The Technical and Scientific Cooperation (TSC) Portfolio under the Convention on Biological Diversity aims to encourage and facilitate action to enhance the implementation of Articles 16, 17 and 18, as well as related provisions of the Convention and its Protocols, through a coordinated and integrated approach.

The objective is to enable Parties to pursue their individual or collective biodiversity-related goals through matchmaking, cooperative exchange of knowledge and expertise, as well as by improving access to available data, resources and technologies.

Through a number of bespoke programmes, the CBD Secretariat:

  • Facilitates access to innovative solutions to address biodiversity-related challenges through the organization of knowledge fairs.

  • Promotes the use of gaming tools to raise awareness and inspire action.

  • Tests out new ideas for transformative change through technology transfer and open innovation.

The CBD Secretariat also helps to support and accelerate the work of the Consortium of Scientific Partners on Biodiversity and its broader member organizations to contribute to the successful implementation of the Strategic Plan for Biodiversity 2011-2020 and the Aichi Biodiversity Targets.
