SADC (Southern African Development Community)

The SADC is an inter-governmental organisation representing 15 southern Africa states. It aims to promote sustainable and equitable economic growth and socio-economic development through efficient productive systems, deeper co-operation and integration, good governance, and durable peace and security. It also addresses the misappropriation of indigenous knowledge systems, and the issues of indigenous intellectual property rights.

Linkages between SABINA/POL-SABINA and the SADC are facilitated through NEPAD-SANBio, and the South African Department of Science and Technology.
