The CBD from formation to today

World Leaders attended the Rio Earth Summit at Rio de Janeiro, in 1992, where the CBD, UNFCCC and the UNFCCD were formed. The goals of the CBD are to protect biodiversity, to use biodiversity without destroying it and to share any benefits from genetic diversity equally. The 189 Countries/ 190 Parties are aided by the Secretariat (SCBD)—Executive secretary, scientist, economists, lawyers, administrative staff and programme assistants.
