CBD : new publications

I am pleased to inform you that the CBD Secretariat has published two new volumes in its Technical Series:

The Conservation and Use of Wildlife-based Resources: the Bushmeat Crisis”, published jointly with CIFOR, highlights the challenges related to the overexploitation of wildlife in many tropical forest regions, and outlines possible policy responses; and

the “Cross-Sectoral Toolkit for the Conservation and Sustainable Management of Forest Biodiversity” lists approaches for the integration of forest biodiversity aspects into decision making processes of other sectors.

Both publications are available at


Hardcopies will be available during the ninth meeting of the Conference of the Parties (COP) in Bonn, Germany, May 19-30, 2008, or can be ordered from secretariat@cbd.int
