CBD media briefing

Publication - October 11, 2012
The Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD), with its 193 parties or delegates is the globe’s most important conference on protecting the planet’s diminishing biodiversity – It is the conference that covers life on earth and the use of the planet’s natural habitats.

Greenpeace believes that international cooperation and prioritisation on protection of biodiversity is critical against the current backdrop of ancient forests being wiped out, oceans being plundered to the point of no return, agricultural biodiversity in meltdown from modern industrial farming, and the impacts of climate change causing irreversible damage to our planet and threatening food security for millions of people.

This briefing lists Greenpeace's demands and expectations from the CBD.
