Biodiversity world expert and author Dr Daniel Robinson has hailed a Cook Islands’ project developed by Dr Graham Matheson, as ‘best practice’ to international experts. Dr Robinson acknowledged CIMTECH (Cook Islands Medical Technologies) and its practices at recent biodiversity conferences held in Nadi and Auckland. Dr Robinson, the author of ‘Confronting Biopiracy – Challenges, Causes and International Debates’ held up the CIMTECH model as an example to other countries for the development of products of biodiversity and traditional knowledge. The CIMTECH project is a venture between Dr Matheson, the Koutu Nui and the University of NSW, Sydney, Australia and has developed products from traditional Cook Islands plants. After nearly 10 years of research, the first product is due to be launched in August as premium, natural skin care brand, TeTika. TeTika is dedicated to honouring former president of the Koutu Nui, Dorice Reid who inspired and supported the project.
