A Community List on International Biodiversity Policy and Practice
The International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD) is pleased to announce the renaming of BIODIV-L as BIODIVERSITY-L.
BIODIVERSITY-L is a free community announcement list for policy makers and practitioners involved in international biodiversity policy.
All members of BIODIV-L have been automatically added to BIODIVERSITY-L.
The re-naming of the community list is timed in advance of the fifth meeting of the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) Conference of the Parties serving as Meeting of the Parties to the Protocol on Biosafety (COP-MOP 5) and the 10th meeting of the Conference of Parties (COP 10) to the CBD, which are convening in Nagoya, Japan, from 11-15 October 2010 and 18-29 October 2010, respectively.
Like each of IISD’s “L” lists, any subscriber to the list may post non-commercial announcements about his or her organization’s activities related to biological diversity policy. BIODIVERSITY-L is not a media list (no press releases, please) and not a discussion list. BIODIVERSITY-L is a free and moderated community communications tool for knowledge-sharing on international biodiversity policy. It is a grassroots, peer-to-peer service meant to advance understanding by allowing subscribers to post announcements related to contributions and activities with a strong focus on biodiversity policy. BIODIVERSITY-L provides an excellent way to circulate cutting edge information on meetings, policy developments, publications, best practices and new initiatives, as well as to keep abreast of the latest biodiversity-related issues, news and events. BIODIVERSITY-L offers users a chance to better publicize and coordinate their efforts through virtual knowledge exchange. To post to the list, mail to email@example.com .
Later this month, during the COP, IISD will be announcing a new initiative, through BIODIVERSITY-L, to further enhance knowledge sharing on international biodiversity policy and practices. Phase I of this new initiative on biodiversity is supported by the Global Environment Facility (GEF).
