Biosafety Clearing House (BCH)

In the bid to build capacity, the Authority in partnership with the United Nations Environment–Global Environment Facility held a three-day sensitization and awareness workshop for key stakeholders in February.  The training whose main focus was to establish the Biosafety Clearing House (BCH) as a fully functional and effective platform for implementation of the Cartagena protocol was held at Twangale Park in Lusaka. The aim of the sensitization and awareness meeting was to consolidate and intensify cooperation to achieving common goals and objectives in the use and operation of the BCH in Zambia. Facilitators included Regional Advisors from the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) Dr. Ossama Abdel-Kawy (Egypt) and Ms. Lillian Munyah Nfor (Cameroon).
