Biodiversity targets for the future
Date:12/7/2010

Following COP 10, scientists will meet again in So Paulo at the international conference Getting Post-2010 Biodiversity Targets Right to discuss how to monitor new biodiversity conservation targets. The goal of the conference is to establish important new science-based targets for the conservation of biodiversity, as well as mechanisms to monitor the implementation of targets.

The event is organized by the Biota-FAPESP, the So Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP) Program aimed at discovering, mapping and analyzing biodiversity, the Academia Brasileira de Cincias (ABC, Brazilian Academy of Sciences), and the Sociedade Brasileira para o Progresso da Cincia (SBPC, Brazilian Society for the Advancement of Science).

The international conference will bring together some of the key players who took part in the tenth meeting of the Conference of the Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity (COP 10), which ended on November 29, 2010, in Nagoya, Japan.

"These researchers are being brought together again less than a month after COP 10, at which signatory nations of the Convention on Biological Diversity signed an ambitious agreement to conserve biodiversity and guarantee that its benefits are shared in a fair and equitable fashion," said Carlos Alfredo Joly, a full professor at the Instituto de Biologia da Universidade Estadual de Campinas (IB-Unicamp, Institute of Biology of the State University at Campinas) and organizer of the event.

Ahmed Djoglaf, general secretary of the Convention on Biological Diversity, will deliver the opening keynote address at meeting. Mr. Djoglaf oversaw the negotiations at the Nagoya meeting.

The next morning, Maximiliano da Cunha Henriques Arienzo, sub-chief of the Environment Division of the Brazilian Ministry of External Relations (also known as Itamaraty), will deliver a report on COP 10 and on the progress being made toward the creation of the Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platfo
