Convention on Biological Diversity
Adopted at the UN Earth Summit in 1992, this convention seeks to ensure the protection of biodiversity, the sustainable use of its components, and the fair distribution of benefits arising from the utilization of genetic resources. COP9 (Ninth Conference of the Parties), which runs May 19-30 in Bonn, is the conference for signatory countries. At COP8 in 2006, a decision was adopted to encourage private-sector participation in the protocol. COP10 is scheduled to be held in Nagoya in 2010.
