Biodiversity-based Products (BBP) as an Economic Source of the Improvement of Livelihoods and Biodiversity Protection



The project,  implemented in Cambodia, Lao PDR, and Viet Nam, supported the development of  biodiversity-based products along the value chain approach referred to as biodiversity-based value chains.

Considered as one of ASEAN’s interventions in mainstreaming biodiversity in the business sector, the BBP Project laid the groundwork for related policy formulations, provides lessons learned from the pilot projects implemented, and produced several knowledge products as references for similar future projects.
