Ninth meeting of the Conference of the Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity (COP 9)

A plant from the arid regions in southern Africa begins its journey through Germany. The African Devil's Claw is at the centre of a travelling exhibition that makes "sustainability" and "equitable benefit sharing" accessible through the use of interactive elements. The "Botanischer Verein zu Hamburg" (Hamburg Botanical Society) has designed the project, which is funded by the German Federal Agency for Nature Conservation (BfN). Following the opening at COP-9, the exhibition will be displayed in various botanical gardens and museums in Germany.
