A mid-term review of progress towards the targets of the Global Strategy for Plant Conservation 2011-2020 will be carried out at the twelfth meeting of the Conference of the Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) in October 2014. In preparation for this mid-term review, a draft technical background document has been compiled by BGCI, in association with the CBD Secretariat, largely based on information provided by members of the Global Partnership for Plant Conservation (GPPC).
The report covers activities that have taken place during the 2011-2013 and is divided into three sections:
The document is now open for peer review and can be accessed at http://www.cbd.int/gbo4review/ .
Guidelines for the review of the document and a template for providing comments are also available on this web page.
This peer review is open to all interested participants. International and non-governmental organizations, institutions, members of universities and scientific bodies and individuals are encouraged to submit comments on the draft.
This document will serve as the basis for the documentation for SBSTTA-18, which will be held in Montreal, Canada from 23-27 June, as well as a further report to be launched in Pyeongchang, Republic of Korea, during the twelfth meeting of the Conference of the Parties in October.
