Through BIOFIN, we have an unparalleled global platform to “work out loud” on our biodiversity journey, sharing ideas and experiences with diverse nations driven by a common objective: to assure the financial sustainability of managing the unique tapestry that is 'life on land' – Dasho Tshering Tobgay, Royal Government of Bhutan, Prime Minister.
