Among the many issues to be considered in developing and analyzing pertinent policies for the sustainable use of biodiversity, this publication concentrates on two areas related to human health: drug discovery and improved nutrition through advances in agriculture. Within this framework, the authors explore scientific and technological alternatives; economic prospects; and environmental, legal, political, sociocultural and institutional consequences and implications for countries at different stages of scientific and economic development. It also explores whether biodiversity will become Latin America's and the Caribbean's competitive advantage.

Emerging connections between biodiversity and biotechnology - bioprospecting models; the nexus between biodiversity and biotechnology in pharmaceuticals and agriculture; politics and policies; economic valuation of biodiversity; legal issues - intellectual property rights and contracts.
