Partner Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD)

Date of submission 01/11/2008


CBD Action pledge

The pledge responds to the sub theme stated in paragraph 3(a) (iii) of decision 2/CP.11 and to the need identified in paragraph 43 (d) of the report on the workshop on climate modelling, scenarios and downscaling (FCCC/SBSTA/2008/9).

The project will strengthen research on biophysical climate systems relating to biodiversity to reduce scientific uncertainties associated with climate projections and thus improve the quality of scenarios and increase the confidence of decision makers in climate and climate impacts information
