THE FOCUS OF THIS ISSUE: CBD AT THE CROSSROADS
This issue of the bulletin has a special focus on the 10th meeting of the Conference of the Parties (COP 10) to the United Nations Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) that will be held in Nagoya, Japan on October 18 to 29, 2010.
As a contribution to COP 10, the Convention on Biological Diversity Alliance (CBD Alliance) – an international network of which WRM forms part – has facilitated the development of a series of briefing papers by representatives of civil society and indigenous peoples’ organizations, which focus on the top ten issues that they believe should be urgently addressed in Nagoya, along with the paths that should be avoided and those that should be followed. In this bulletin we present three of the ten issues put forward by the CBD Alliance (to see all ten, visit: http://undercovercop.org/wp-content/uploads/2010/10/CBDA_10briefings_ENG_v8.pdf).
