Date and Time
20 May 2008 13:15 - 14:45
The aim of this event is to find ways of implementing the CBDs program of work that pertains to transboundary conservation and the development of "peace parks" or other measures that use environmental cooperation as a means of conflict resolution. The event will build on the publication of a new book edited by the event's organizer on this topic (published by MIT Press with cover endorsements by E.O Wilson, Achim Steiner, George Schaller and a foreword by Julia Marton-Lefevre). This event has been planned in cooperation with UNEP's World Conservation Monitoring Center, The Transboundary Protected Areas Taskforce of the World Commission on Protected Areas and the CBD secretariat.
