International Agenda for Botanic Gardens in Conservation

The International Agenda for Botanic Gardens in Conservation is a global policy framework for botanic gardens worldwide to contribute to biodiversity conservation, particularly as it relates to the implementation of the Convention on Biological Diversity.

The Agenda was launched at the First World Botanic Gardens Congress in Asheville, U.S.A. in 2000.

We are very pleased with the response to this initiative and are convinced that it will stimulate the evaluation and development of conservation policies and practices in botanic gardens to enhance their effectiveness and efficiency, promote the role of botanic gardens in conservation.

Furthermore, it allows actions undertaken in support of plant conservation to be recognised and recorded internationally as contributions towards the global effort being made to conserve plant diversity. For example, contributions made by institutions to implement the International Agenda will be reported by BGCI to the Secretariat of the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) towards the achievement of the Convention’s Global Strategy for Plant Conservation.

One of the primary goals of the 2nd World Botanic Gardens Congress held in Barcelona, Spain in April 2004 was toreview the implementation of the International Agenda for Botanic Gardens in Conservation.
