Library and Documentation

The publication and dissemination of documentation are one of the important functions of the Secretariat of the Convention on Biological Diversity. This page is a compilation of CBD as well as external resources related to biodiversity.

Global Biodiversity Outlook Global Biodiversity Outlook 4 (GBO4) , now in its fourth edition, is the flagship publication of the Convention on Biological Diversity. The Outlook assesses the status and trends of biodiversity in support of the mid-term review of the Strategic Plan for Biodiversity 2011-2020. The Outlook also examines the steps being taken by the global community to ensure that biodiversity is conserved, used sustainably, and that benefits arising from the use of genetic resources are shared equitably.

Handbook This Handbook is intended as a reference guide to decisions adopted by the Conference of the Parties (COP) to the Convention on Biological Diversity and the Cartagena Protocol on Biosafety (COP-MOP) as well as a guide to ongoing activities in relation to particular Articles and/or cross-cutting issues of the Convention.

Technical Series The goal of the CBD Technical Series is to contribute to the dissemination of up-to-date and accurate information on selected topics that are important for the conservation of biological diversity, the sustainable use of its components and the equitable sharing of its benefits.

Good Practice Guides The Good Practice Guide series presents policy considerations, management tools, market-based instruments, and capacity-building methods that support biodiversity conservation and poverty reduction in a number of different development sectors. Each guide in the series is composed of a booklet and accompanying PowerPoint presentation.

UNEP/CBD Issue Papers The UNEP/CBD issue paper series explores the interconnections between biodiversity and climate change. The series was designed for decision-makers, who need a quick grasp of the science and some suggested solutions.
