The principal objectives, of both the Colombia and Panama components, are the incorporation of biodiversity concerns into existing national development plans, the provision of scientific information for planning, land-use and the establishment of appropriate legal and framework, along with the identification of alternative production methods and uses for the sustainable use of biological resources. The project takes a participatory and multisectoral approach towards the fulfillment of its long-term objectives.
