Programme for Change: Decisions from the Fourth Meeting of the Conference of the Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity

United Nations Environment Programme (1998)

The fourth meeting of the Conference of the Parties (COP-4) saw the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) move from its start-up phase to a long-term planning cycle. Attended by over 1,300 participants from 152 countries, the Bratislava meeting completed a heavy work schedule and adopted 19 decisions. These decisions will guide the work of the Parties and the secretariat until COP-S (to be held in May 2000) and beyond. Several decisions addressed the ecosystem programmes being developed under the Convention.
