About the Organization

The Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) entered into force on 29 December 1993. It has 3 main objectives:

  • The conservation of biological diversity
  • The sustainable use of the components of biological diversity
  • The fair and equitable sharing of the benefits arising out of the utilization of genetic resources

About the Grant

​ The Bio-Bridge Initiative is an overarching programme focused on catalyzing and facilitating technical and scientific cooperation among Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity and to its Protocols on biosafety (Cartagena Protocol) and on access and benefit-sharing (Nagoya Protocol). The Bio-Bridge Initiative facilitates technical and scientific cooperation among Parties by:

  • linking Parties that have specific technical and scientific needs with Parties or institutions that are able to provide the necessary technical support and resources to meet those needs through mutual partnerships; and
  • creating a space for countries and institutions to share knowledge, good practices and lessons learned with each other.

As part of its mandate to catalyse and facilitate technical and scientific cooperation, the Bio-Bridge Initiative (BBI) currently provides seed funding of up to $20,000 to incubate projects and partnerships that promote exemplary approaches, particularly through South-South and triangular cooperation, to address biodiversity-related issues and challenges, and showcase good practices and lessons learned.


The following institutions are eligible to apply for seed funding support:

  • Relevant governmental agencies, research and academic institutions, and non-governmental organizations in developing country Parties and Parties with economies in transition;
  • Indigenous Peoples and Local Communities;

Eligible cooperation proposals must involve project partners and/or technical assistance providers from at least two or more countries.

How to Apply

Requesting institutions from eligible Parties must fill out the Seed Funding Proposal Form and send it by e-mail to the Bio-Bridge Initiative at this address: bbiproposals@cbd.int before the deadline specified in the notification.
