Biodiversity: Progress & Highlights

GEO BON contributes to the Convention on Biological Diversity

GEO Biodiversity Observation Network (GEO BON) became a key contributor to the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD). At the Tenth Conference of the Parties (COP-10), a mandate was given to GEO BON to prepare an evaluation of existing observation capabilities relevant to the CBD’s targets for protecting biodiversity by 2020. The Global Invasive Species Information Network created country-level dynamic maps of native and invasive species; For more details see the GEO BON website.
