Abstract

In light of almost twenty years of implementation, this article looks afresh at the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD), by assessing its evolution and current legal significance with a view to better understanding its immediate future. To this end, the article critically analyses the outcomes of the tenth meeting of the CBD Conference of the Parties, in order to determine progress in the development and implementation of the Convention at the level of both international cooperation and national implementation.

Keywords: international law, biodiversity, human rights, climate change, compliance, benefit-sharing
