The 10th Conference of the Parties (CoP) of the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) is happening right now, from October 18 to 29, in Nagoya, Japan. Thousands of decision makers are attending this important meeting to discuss a plan for biodiversity conservation over the next ten years.
Due to its global role in biodiversity conservation, IUCN has a long history with the CBD and a significant presence at the current CoP. In order to keep the rest of us up to date with respect to what is happening in Nagoya, staff from the IUCN Species Survival Commission have set up a web page where they are posting relevant updates from the conference. This is a great place to stay informed about this important meeting, and to hear about some of the highlights. See it for yourself by clicking here.
