Convention on Biological Diversity
International
http://www.biodiv.org
International Convention
Signed by 150 government leaders at the 1992 Rio Earth Summit, the Convention on Biological Diversity is dedicated to promoting sustainable development.
Conceived as a practical tool for translating the principles of Agenda 21 into reality, the Convention recognizes that biological diversity is about more than plants, animals and micro organisms and their ecosystems – it is about people and our need for food security, medicines, fresh air and water, shelter, and a clean and healthy environment in which to live.

The Convention establishes three main goals:

  • the conservation of biological diversity,
  • the sustainable use of its components,
  • the fair and equitable sharing of the benefits from the use of genetic resources.
