Attendees will support the ongoing efforts to consider and develop further the technical rationales, milestones and indicators for the GSPC up to 2020 and synchronize with the Strategic Plan for Biodiversity 2011-2020. In addition, attendees will help evaluate a draft GSPC toolkit that is being prepared to support GSPC implementation at all levels prior to its submission for review by the Convention.

The conference will also provide an opportunity for strategic discussion on mainstreaming plant conservation in national development agendas, such as including links to the implementation of the CBD's Strategic Plan as well as providing guidance and suggestions for countries that are updating National Biodiversity Strategies and Action Plans (NBSAPs) to include the targets of the GSPC.

Finally, the conference aims to build leadership amongst the participating organizations for monitoring and delivery of the GSPC targets going forward.

"I have no doubt that this conference will help to set a working agenda for many participating organizations worldwide," said Wyse Jackson.

With scientists working on six continents in 35 countries around the globe, the Missouri Botanical Garden has one of the three largest plant science programs in the world, along with The New York Botanical Garden and the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew (outside London). The Garden focuses its work on areas that are rich in biodiversity yet threatened by habitat destruction, and operates the world's most active research and training programs in tropical botany. Garden scientists collaborate with local institutions, schools and indigenous peoples to understand plants, create awareness, offer alternatives and craft conservation strategies. The Garden is striving for a world that can sustain us without sacrificing prosperity for future generation, a world where people share a commitment to manage biological diversity for the com
