4th Intergovernmental ‘Biodiversity in Europe’ Conference

The World Summit on Sustainable Development in the Johannesburg Plan of Implementation reinforced the need to reduce the rate of loss of biodiversity by 2010. The pan European Ministers of Environment in the Kyiv Resolution on Biodiversity and the Ministers of Environment of the European Union at Göteborg committed to halt the loss of biodiversity by 2010.

The Conference will consider the issues on the agenda of the 8th Conference of the Parties to the CBD (20 to 31 March 2006, Curitiba, Brazil) and explore the status of implementation of the biodiversity commitments in the pan European region in order to recognize important achievements and recommend steps to address the gaps and needs of the region.
