Abstract: 

Adopted at the Rio Earth Summit in 1992, the Convention on biological diversity has now been ratified by over 160 countries and forms the backbone of many of the biodiversity activities that have taken place over the last five years. However, despite the unprecedented success of this major international convention, many questions still remain unanswered and many uncertainties prevail. This book written with conservationists, policy makers and students of development studies, environmental studies and conservation biology in mind, sets out to describe the movement that led to the signing of the Convention, the forces that gave rise to the problem and sets out a series of policy prescriptions intended to facilitate the development of institutions within the international community to give effect to the aspirations of the Convention.
