CNFLOne of INBio’s main contributions has been the formulation of a concept frame for the protection knowledge and use of biodiversity, which is today a national policy.  This frame emphasizes that the best way to conserve biodiversity is through its rightful use to improve the costaricans quality of life, involving the most diverse sectors in society in this process.
