Biodiversity Partnership Mesoamerica (BPM)

Biodiversity Partnership Mesoamerica (BPM) was established in April 2012 in San Jose, Costa Rica with the mission of being a regional platform to involve the private sector in biodiversity conservation efforts and create a network of actors in Central America and the Dominican Republic.

To achieve its mission, BPM offers knowledge generation, capacity building, and facilitation of collaboration between partners to exchange experiences and best business practices for the sustainable use and conservation of natural resources. BPM works with its partners in the private sector, public sector, academia, and civil society to build alliances and business and biodiversity projects that develop the region in a sustainable way.
