CBD Technical Series on biodiversity conservation

The Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) has just published a Technical Series on biodiversity conservation in managed landscapes. It focuses on community management of agricultural ecosystems. The publication will be distributed at the CBD-SBSTTA meeting in Nairobi next week and later at the Conference of the Parties to the CBD (COP10) in Nagoya Japan.

Bioversity International made major contributions by providing a lead methods paper on Linking Wild and Cultivated Landscapes and several case studies, One describes the experience of our work in Kati and innovations in the use of agrobiodiversity to cope with climate change, the other on innovations community management of biodiversity in Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan. We also work with partners in Sri Lanka whose case study on Kandyan home gardens is also included.

The Technical Bulletin is downloadable from here.
