Partnerships & Collaborations

In collaboration with our associated organizations, notably the non-profit bioDevelopments—International Institute (a 501 (c) (3) tax exempt organization headquartered in the State of New York, USA), and bioDevelopments LLC (International Consultants), also headquartered in the USA, we implemented a series of broad activities over the years, including collaborative and interdisciplinary policy research, capacity building and training activities; and meetings and think tank functions to generate and expand novel ideas, realistic options and pragmatic strategies to solve important international development and environmental issues that promote long-term thinking and sound economic and human development.
