National Celebrations

The 13th regular session of AMCEN- May/June 2010 in Mali will provide excellent opportunity and platform to raise the issue of Biodiversity high at the political agenda in Africa through ministerial policy dialogue. It is expected that a specific decision will be made by the African ministers and would feed into the AU process as a contribution to the meeting of the Heads of State on 20 September 2010 at the UN General Assembly session on biodiversity in preparation for the tenth Conference of Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) in Nagoya, Japan in October 2010.

Mali held a launch for the International Year of Biodiversity logo and has plans to celebrate the Year.
