CONVENTION ON BIOLOGICAL DIVERSITY, CBD

CONVENTION TEXT

Technical Series

The goal of the CBD Technical Series is to contribute to the dissemination of up-to-date and accurate information on selected topics that are important for the conservation of biological diversity, the sustainable use of its components and the equitable sharing of its benefits. A large and growing body of evidence has clearly established the need to disseminate synthesis publications relevant to CBD objectives and selected reports presented at CBD meetings.

The CBD Technical Series is intended to:

  • Foster scientific and technical cooperation;
  • Improve communication between the Convention and the scientific community;
  • Increase awareness of current biodiversity-related problems and concerns; and
  • Facilitate widespread and effective use of the growing body of scientific and technical information on conserving and using biological diversity.

The CBD Technical Series comes at a time when the international community through the Conference of the Parties to the Convention has committed itself to achieving tangible results in all aspects of the sustainable management of biological diversity for social and economic purposes. We therefore believe that this series will be useful to the broader scientific community and those concerned with biodiversity management.
