We are seeking input on what New Zealand should be trying to achieve in the Convention on Biological Diversity to help save the world’s biodiversity.

New Zealand will be attending meetings of the Convention on Biological Diversity in July.

On the agenda are issues such as what needs to be done to save global biodiversity, whether genetic modification has a role in conservation work, who owns animal and plant genetic resources, how to define a marine protected areas, the impact of marine litter, methods to deal with invasive pests, and much more. 

Full agendas can be found on the Convention on Biological Diversity website here (external link) and here (external link).

If you are interested in these issues, join us for a public meeting.

When: 2.30pm, Friday 15 June 

Where: Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade
