The Final Countdown


The Guardian has launched a new campaign to compile the top 100 specific tasks that G20 governments should do to halt the loss of biodiversity. Posted on August 13th, the article slams the Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity for failing to meet the 2010 biodiversity targets that they agreed upon in 2002 and argues that the upcoming Conference of the Parties in Nagoya in October is “on course to make the farcical climate talks in Copenhagen look like a roaring success”. The suggested actions should make a major contribution to protecting a particular species or ecosystem, be widely supported by published scientific evidence, and be politically costly or opposed by special interest groups. Help pressure the G20 governments to do their part by submitting a contribution to the Biodiversity100 list here.
