Universities and Scientific community are having both the expert knowledge and technical capacity to develop, and promote, effective actions for the conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity. They are the platforms for dissemination of knowledge towards implementation of policy directives. The Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) has one of the mandates for conservation and sustainable development efforts through Universities and Scientific community (http://www.cbd.int/universities/).
