Handbook of the Convention on Biological Diversity
In 1992, at the Earth Summit in Rio, the United Nations adopted the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) to agree international measures aimed at preserving the vital ecosystems and biological resources on which we all depend. This is the official handbook to the Convention and presents all the most important information about the CBD, including a guide to the decisions adopted and to ongoing activities. It is an essential resource for all the governments, intergovernmental agencies, NGOs and conservation bodies and researchers working in this area. Included with the book is a fully indexed and cross-referenced CD-ROM containing all the relevant background material to the Convention, linked to relevant decisions and other sources of information.
