Dear friends of INBio:

It is a pleasure for the National Institute of Biodiversity (INBio) to inform you that our Annual Report 2003 is available in our home page.

This report will clearly show how our institution grapples with two mayor parallel challenges: how to full-fill the mission it adopted, and at the same time, how to consolidate as an institution.

In the area of organizational development, this year we produced the Institutional Development Plan 2004-2006. As we began to implement this plan, we saw the various sectors of our institution coming into alignment around the strategic objectives.

We continued this year to pursue our quest for excellence in the institution’s activities on the scientific, technical and educational fronts. The focus has been on generating information needed to manage wild biodiversity and on discovering new and intelligent ways to use it sustainably.

We are inviting you to access the following electronic address: Annual Report




Best regards,



President
