International Agenda for Botanic Gardens

The International Agenda is a policy framework for botanic gardens worldwide to contribute to biodiversity conservation.

The International Agenda for Botanic Gardens 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 International Agenda.

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 conservation 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.

Why Register My Garden?

Your garden can show its commitment to the International Agenda, by registering. Registration is free and open to all (your botanic garden is probably already contributing) – and it helps BGCI to demonstrate to policy makers the important role botanic gardens play in meeting conservation targets.

And that means more support and recognition from your local communities and government.

Three Steps to Register

  1. Download the registration booklet in your chosen language
  2. Complete the form
