The Convention on Biological Diversity came into force in 1993 as the international legal instrument for:

  • The conservation of biological diversity.
  • The sustainable use of its components.
  • The fair and equitable sharing of the benefits arising out of the use of genetic resources.

The CBD’s governing body is the Conference of the Parties (COP).

The CBD is also known as the Biodiversity Convention.
