Global Biodiversity Outlook
Executive Summary (pdf)
Convention on Biological Diversity 2002
Published by the United Nations biodiversity convention, the Global Biodiversity Outlook is a periodic assessment of the state of the world's biodiversity, which includes an analysis of the steps being taken to ensure that the convention is being adopted in its member countries.
The report also serves as a useful guide to the convention itself; provides information on what individual countries are doing to protect their biodiversity, and includes a list of biodiversity projects that are being funded by the Global Environment Facility.
