Un Agreement On Biodiversity
COP-4 took place from 4 to 15 May 1998 in Bratislava, Slovakia. Delegates spoke, among others, of inland waters, marine and coastal waters, agricultural and forest biodiversity; The clearing house mechanism; Biosecurity implementation of section 8, point j) (traditional and Aboriginal knowledge); Access and distribution of benefits A review of the Convention`s activities; and national reports. Delegates also reviewed the financial mechanism. Cop-3 met From November 4 to 15, 1996 in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Among the decisions taken by the delegates were: a work programme on agricultural biodiversity and a more limited programme on forest biodiversity; agreement on holding an intersessions workshop on traditional knowledge (Article 8, d); Request for observer status by the Executive Secretary to the World Trade and Environment Committee of the World Trade Organization (WTO); and a statement by the CBD at the special session of the UN General Assembly (UNGASS) on the review of the implementation of Action 21. Since the early 1970s, modern biotechnology has allowed scientists to genetically and biochemically modify plants, animals and microorganisms to create modified living organisms (LOS). In many countries of the biotech industry, national legislation already exists to ensure the safe transfer, handling, use and disposal of the LVO and its products. These precautionary practices are collectively referred to as “biosecurity.” However, there are no binding international agreements that deal with situations in which the LVO crosses national borders. Section 19 of the CBD provides for the parties to consider the need and modalities of a biosecurity protocol.
The conference provided a mid-term assessment of the UN Biodiversity Decade 2011-2020 initiative, which aims to promote conservation and sustainable use of nature. A total of 35 decisions were taken, including a decision on the integration of the gender dimension in order to integrate the gender dimension into biodiversity analysis. The Nagoya Protocol on Access to Genetic Resources and the Equitable and Equitable Sharing of Benefits from Their Use of the Convention on Biological Diversity was adopted on 29 October 2010 in Nagoya, Aichi Prefecture, Japan, at the tenth meeting of the Conference of the Parties and came into force on 12 October 2014.  The protocol is an endorsement of the Convention on Biological Diversity and provides a transparent legal framework for the effective implementation of one of the three objectives of the Convention on Biological Diversity: the fair and equitable sharing of the benefits of the use of genetic resources. It thus contributes to the conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity.   CBD COP 15 will verify the implementation and implementation of the CBD`s strategic plan for biodiversity 2011-2020. The final decision on the post-2020 global framework for biodiversity should also be taken at the same time as decisions on related issues, such as capacity building and resource mobilization. Contracting parties are required to report on the national implementation of the convention, including the Aichi objectives, and the implementation of national biodiversity strategies. The second SBSTTA meeting was held September 2-6, 1996 in Montral, Canada. Topics on the agenda included biodiversity monitoring and assessment, practical approaches to taxonomy, economic assessment of biodiversity, access to genetic resources, agricultural biodiversity, terrestrial biodiversity, marine biodiversity and biodiversity, biosecurity and CHM. In the run-up to the Conference of the Parties (COP 11) on biobiological diversity in Hyderabad, India in 2012, preparations for a global, with old and new partners and building on the experience of World Wide Views on global warming.
 The CBD`s current strategic plan and biodiversity objectives for Aichi are coming to an end this year.
