Eleventh meeting of the Conference of the Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity (COP 11)

This event will outline the process being made towards the achievement of a World Flora online by 2020, to support the Global Strategy for Plant Conservation (GSPC) and its national implementation. The event will highlight recent initiatives, including the formation of an international consortium of leading botanical institutions worldwide to facilitate the achievement of this target (GSPC Target 1). The ways in which a World Flora Online will support other GSPC work and contribute to the Biodiversity Strategy too will also be included. Participants will be encouraged to provide feedback to help ensure that the World Flora Online is structured to be most useful and effective in meeting the needs of national authorities, conservation practitioners and those working to achieve the other GSPC targets
