Global Biodiversity Outlook (GBO)

The second meeting of the Conference of the Parties called for the preparation of a periodic report on biological diversity: the Global Biodiversity Outlook (GBO). It suggested that the GBO should provide a summary of the status of biological diversity and an analysis of the steps being taken by the global community to ensure that biodiversity is conserved and used sustainably, and that benefits arising from the use of genetic resources are shared equitably. Three editions of the report have been prepared and preparations for the forth edition are currently underway.

The forth edition of the Global Biodiversity Outlook (GBO-4) will be prepared to provide a mid term assessment towards the progress in the implementation of the Strategic Plan for Biodiversity 2011-2020 and the Aichi Biodiversity Targets. GBO- 4 will also be an important communication tool during the United Nations Decade on Biodiversity and will consist of several reports, the first of which will be released in 2014 to enable the twelfth meeting of the Conference of the Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity to assess progress in the implementation of the Strategic Plan.

Global Biodiversity Outlook 3 The third edition of Global Biodiversity Outlook (GBO-3) summarizes the latest data on status and trends of biodiversity and draws conclusions for the future strategy of the Convention. GBO-3 is based on a range of information sources, including National Reports, biodiversity indicators information, scientific literature, and a study assessing biodiversity scenarios for the future

Global Biodiversity Outlook 2 Global Biodiversity Outlook 2 assesses the current status and trends of biodiversity and the key drivers of biodiversity loss. It provides a powerful case for the importance of biodiversity to human well-being.
