CBD Alliance on Agriculture Biodiversity
Dear friends and colleagues,
Re: Agricultural biodiversity for life
Please find attached a briefing paper on agriculture biodiversity prepared by the CBD Alliance for the Eleventh Conference of the Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD), which will meet from 8-19 October 2012 in Hyderabad. India. The conservation and sustainable use of agricultural biodiversity is fundamental to realising the goals of the CBD. Implementing CBD Decisions that impact on agricultural biodiversity and related ecosystem functions is vital not only to underpin sustainable food provision but also to improve human and planetary health.
With best wishes,
