CABI is owned by the governments of 44 developed and developing member countries – which together account for around 75% of the world’s population. This unique, unbiased inter-governmental structure allows us to bring together the views and interests of donor and recipient countries in a way that other science-based development organizations cannot.
As a result, CABI gives its donor-country members a bridge to developing-world governments, providing them with unique insights into the needs of their priority countries. Our latest member country consultations, for example, saw governments in Asia, Africa and Latin America and the Caribbean make clear their need for CABI to help on biofuels and climate change, institutional capacity strengthening and knowledge management, and on tackling the phytosanitary issues that hamper farmers’ access to markets.
