Torfaen Biodiversity Partnership

Global Biodiversity

Convention on Biological Diversity

The Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) entered into force on 29 December 1993. It has 3 main objectives:

  • The conservation of biological diversity
  • The sustainable use of the components of biological diversity
  • The fair and equitable sharing of the benefits arising out of the utilization of genetic resources

The following links provide detailed information regarding the Convention and how it operates.

Rio Conventions’ Ecosystem Pavilion

The Pavilion will demonstrate, through thematic presentations, workshops and the worldwide web, the challenges facing biodiversity and land managers resulting from the unavoidable and projected adverse impacts of climate change.

Parties and organisations will profile activities that link biodiversity conservation and sustainable use, sustainable land management and efforts to combat desertification, and climate change mitigation and adaptation.

The multiple benefits derived from these activities and their contribution towards sustainable development and the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) will also be presented.
