What is it?

The Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) is a global agreement addressing all aspects of biological diversity: genetic resources, species, and ecosystems. The Parties to the Convention adopted a Strategic Plan for Biodiversity, including the Aichi Biodiversity Targets, for the 2011-2020 period. This plan provides an overarching framework on biodiversity, not only for the biodiversity-related conventions, but for the entire United Nations system and all other partners engaged in biodiversity management and policy development.

How it can help?

Aichi Target 9 of the Strategic Plan for Biodiversity concerns invasive species, and the CBD provides a range of resources and guidelines for understanding and addressing this Target.
