Voices for BioJustice produces accessible materials for communities, researchers, companies, governments and others working to develop effective strategies, policies and laws. The objective is to create the conditions necessary to realise the value of biodiversity and generate benefits for local groups. Policy briefs include those developed from case studies, theme-based briefs, and synthesis briefs on lessons learned around the world. Illustrations, infographics, and other visual aids are used to convey complex information in simple and accessible ways.

Side events and workshops presenting findings are held at key national and international meetings to encourage uptake of the findings and recommendations. Capacity and awareness regarding the Convention on Biological Diversity (ABS) and related policy processes are raised at the local level through the production of policy briefs and supporting workshops.
