The MOE contributes towards the Nagoya Protocol Implementation Fund (NPIF), the newest trust fund of the Global Environment Facility (GEF). NPIF was created to support eligible developing countries in activities related to the early ratification and implementation of the Nagoya Protocol on Access and Benefit Sharing. On December 13, 2011, its first project was selected. This project, implemented in Panama over the next 3 years, will support the discovery of nature-based products for the pharmaceutical and agrochemical industries.
