Kipini Conservancy @ the CBD Conference in Nairobi

From the 10th to the 28th of May 2010, at the United Nations Environment Program Headquarters in Nairobi, there is the ongoing conference on the Convention on Biological Diversity.

the conference has brought together key stakeholders from all corners of the globe.. this is a preamble to the COP10 meeting on CBD to be held in Nagoya Japan.

This is a remarkable occassion.This conference gives the opportunity to highlight the problems and weaknesses in current legislation to deal with the problems of biodiversity not only in Kenya but on a global level. A lot of the workshops are technical and dealing with the rewording and amendment of the current CBD document. But there are also side events that are topic specific dealing with issues such as biofuels, which i had the privledge of attending. There is also the issues of bird life, plants, agriculture in relation to biodiversity and the legal aspects of the CBD.

I will keep you posted on the progress as the conference moves along…

NB: There is also the issue of Invasive species, and i discovered that some of the plants and animals you and I regularly admire may be invasive species and pose a  huge risk to the overall biodiversity.

Again, will keep you posted…
