Crossroads of Life on Earth - Exploring means to meet the 2010 Biodiversity Target

dc.contributor.authorUnited Nations Environment Programme World Conservation Monitoring Centre (United Nations Environment Programme-WCMC)
dc.descriptionThe aim of this assessment study was to explore policy options under current discussion in the global political arena that could have major positive or negative impacts on biodiversity. The central concern of the assessment is the achievement of the 2010 Biodiversity Target at global and regional levels, as agreed upon under the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD). However, because of the time lag of several measures, the longterm effects with a time horizon of 2050 are also taken into account. The assessment was carried out using models allowing a quantitative approach. Results have been expressed where possible in terms of the 2010 indicators according to the CBD Conference of the Parties (COP) decisions VII/30 and VIII/15. These results were used as input for the second edition of the Global Biodiversity Outlook (GBO-2) to support policy-makers in determining cost-effective ways to achieve the 2010 target.
