The Convention on Biological Diversity

The Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) has three main objectives: the conservation of biological diversity, the sustainable use of the components of biological diversity, and the fair and equitable sharing of the benefits arising out of the utilization of genetic resources. More

The Secretariat cooperates, collaborates, and exchanges information with the CBD Secretariat on various matters of common interest, e.g. to prevent and combat illegal traffic in environmentally-sensitive commodities through the Green Customs Initiative.
