This manual aims to support the implementation of the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) by providing guidance on how to assess, design and implement trade-related policies in the agriculture sector in order to promote development, and the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals through the conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity.

This is part of a four-year EC-funded project which aims to support the CBD by building capacity in developing countries for assessing, designing and implementing policies that maximise development gains from trade-related policies in the agriculture sector, while minimizing impacts on biodiversity.
