DescriptionGlobal Biodiversity Outlook is the flagship publication of the Convention on Biological Diversity. The third edition of the Global Biodiversity Outlook (GBO-3) was published in 2010 and draws on a range of information sources, including National Reports, biodiversity indicators information, scientific literature, and a study assessing biodiversity scenarios for the future. GBO-3 summarizes the latest data on status and trends of biodiversity and draws conclusions for the future strategy of the Convention. GBO-3 contains the sobering facts and figures while pin pointing several key reasons as to why the challenge of conserving and indeed enhancing biodiversity remains unmet. The aim is to raise awareness among political leaders and nations and an urge for action, and provide decision makers with messages that will aid them in developing policy and management strategies that are ambitious, forward looking and proactive.
