The CEBioS programme funded by the Belgian Development Cooperation and hosted by the Royal Belgian Institute of Natural Sciences developed a capacity development concept linking scientific data to policy development.

In 2015 four projects were selected in Benin, Burundi and the D.R.Congo. The focus was on national indicator processes and on non-timber forest products, especially medicinal plants. Since communicating the highly policy-relevant outcomes of these projects and the associated management advice at both national and international levels is paramount to this process, policy briefs were created to summarize the results to inform policy makers.

The four policy briefs (in French) are available here:
