IUCN's Coundown 2010 Initiative has been holding its Partners’ Assembly at the CBD meeting in Bonn on International Biodiversity Day (May 22, 2008).
With less than 1,000 days left before 2010, the Assembly is a unique opportunity for partners to exchange views and information on the best strategies to adopt to reach the target.
The Countdown 2010 Partners’ Assembly brings together a great number of actors committed to reaching the 2010 target. Stakeholders from a wide variety of fields come together to present ideas, raise issues and discuss appropriate actions in order to ensure that biodiversity loss will halt by 2010.
Sebastien Winkler, Head of IUCN's Countdown 2010 explains about the big effors behind this initiative.
