GBO-4 - Resource requirements
The evaluation of the third edition of the Global Biodiversity Outlook
identified the lack of financial resources as being one of the main limitations to the preparation of GBO-3. In particular the lack of resources prevented the report's communication strategy from being fully implemented which in turn limited the overall impact of the report.
In decision XI/3 the Conference of the Parties urged Parties and invited other Governments and donors to make timely financial contributions for the preparation and production of the fourth edition of the Global Biodiversity Outlook and its ancillary products, including translations in all United Nations languages, in accordance with the work plan and budget estimates
for their preparation.
To date financial or in-kind support for the preparation of the fourth edition of the Global Biodiversity Outlook has been received from the following Parties:
The European Union
