International Agenda for Botanic Gardens in Conservation (2nd Edition)
The International Agenda is a policy framework for botanic gardens worldwide to contribute to biodiversity conservation, particularly as it relates to the implementation of the Convention on Biological Diversity.
Botanic gardens are responding strongly to this initiative by Registering with the IA.
Recognition for the Work of Botanic Gardens
The International Agenda is helping to promote the role of botanic gardens in conservation to a wider public. It provides a framework for gardens to demonstrate how their work contributes to vital plant consevation initiatives, like the Global Strategy for Plant Conservation.
For example, contributions made by institutions to implement the International Agenda are reported by BGCI to the Secretariat of the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) towards the achievement of the GSPC
Declare Your Garden's Committment to the International Agenda
Your garden can show its committment to the International Agenda for Botanic Gardens in Conservation. Registration is free and open to all (your botanic garden is probably already contributing) - and it helps BGCI to demonstrate to the wider world the important role botanic gardens that play.
The Role of Botanic Gardens in Plant Conservation
Botanic gardens play a key role in the conservation of the world's plant diversity and the education of people in environmental issues. BGCI facilitates this work through delivering publications, workshops, congresses, support and guidance. Together we are making plants, and thus life, more secure.
