Bioprospecting is the exploration of biodiversity for the discovery of new biological resources of social and economic value. With the highest biodiversity in the world together with the wide number of industries that could benefit from developing these resources, Latin America is destined to be the leader in bioprospecting. The sustainable management of natural resources, the development of regulatory frameworks and international partnerships will be key in order to have a successful social and economic impact in the economies of the region. Join this session to learn what bioprospecting strategies are being developed in major Latin American countries.
