CABI is a not-for-profit organization established by a United Nations treaty-level agreement between 48 member countries. Each member country has an equal role in the organization's governance, policies and strategic direction, in addition to enjoying a number of privileges and services relating to our scientific expertise, products and resources. These include disease identification, capacity building and information products.
The supreme governing board of CABI is the Review Conference of member countries, which reviews CABI's work programme every three to five years and determines its broad policies and strategies. An Executive Council, with a representative from each member country, meets usually twice a year to monitor CABI's affairs and the implementation of the Review Conference resolutions.
Most importantly, membership of CABI gives national governments a leadership role in directing and influencing the global development agenda through the work of the organization and its international network of partners.
