The IFBA is pleased to contribute to UNIDIR’s publication “Stakeholder Perspectives on the Biological Weapons Convention”. Advancing biological disarmament and strengthening biosecurity cannot be achieved by States Parties to the BWC alone. It requires collaboration with diverse stakeholders from around the globe, including biosafety associations and civil society.
