Convention on Biological Diversity
The Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) was formulated in December 1993. At the 1992 Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro, world leaders agreed on a comprehensive strategy for "sustainable development". One of the key agreements adopted at Rio was the CBD. This pact among the vast majority of the world's governments sets out commitments for maintaining the world's ecological systems as while pursuing economic development. The Convention establishes three main goals: the conservation of biological diversity, the sustainable use of its components, and the fair and equitable sharing of the benefits from the use of genetic resources.
