  • 2010 - Global Biodiversity Challenge term
Definition International meeting held in London from 21 to 23 May 2003.
Remark
This meeting coincided with the International Day for Biological Diversity, on 22 May and was convened by the Secretariat of the Convention on Biological Diversity in partnership with the World Conservation Monitoring Centre of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP-WCMC) and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and financial support from the Governments of the Netherlands and the United Kingdom.

The meeting brought together approximately 150 participants including Government nominated experts and representatives of biodiversity-related conventions, UN agencies, academic and research institutions, industry/business sector, local and indigenous communities, international and other relevant governmental and non-governmental organizations.

The meeting was a direct response to decision VI/26 adopted at the sixth meeting of the Conference of the Parties in April 2002. In that decision, the Conference of the Parties adopted the Strategic Plan for the Convention, which commits parties to a more effective and coherent implementation of the three objectives of the Convention and to achieve by 2010 a significant reduction of the current rate of biodiversity loss at the global, regional and national level.
