Contribution towards Global Biodiversity Outlook 3 (GBO3) - WC0905

Global Biodiversity Outlook assesses the current status and trends of biodiversity and the key drivers of biodiversity loss. It contains a succinct overview of the status of the implementation of the Convention on Biological Diversity, progress towards the 2010 Biodiversity Target and its contribution to the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals.
The goal of the GBO is to provide a tool for use by Contracting Parties and other stakeholders to:
• review progress made by the Convention toward its three objectives,
• identify barriers to implementation,
• help set priorities for implementation, and
• communicate progress and advocate needs to decision-makers.
