About this Website

The Secretariat of the Convention on Biological Diversity has been developing this website in 2007. Due to limited time and resources, work in still in progress to complete and improve some sections of the site. This website is an essential communication platform for outreach and for further development of the Convention's clearing-house mechanism. The Secretariat is committed to strengthen it in order to provide the Parties and other biodiversity stakeholders with a high-quality state-of-the-art information tool that will effectively assist them in finding the information they need.
