At the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development,
in Rio de Janeiro, 1992, most nations endorsed the new
Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD). The CBD is one of
the most highly supported of international environmental agreements,
with over 190 signatory nations. Australia is one of these
nations, and in 1996, in accordance with the CBD’s requirements,
all Australian State and Territory governments, as well as the Commonwealth
Government, endorsed The National Strategy for the
Conservation of Australia’s Biological Diversity. Although in
some ways a far-sighted document that has achieved significant
advances in biodiversity conservation in Australia, we are concerned
that many of the actions proposed in the 1996 strategy
have been poorly implemented or not implemented at all over
the last 12 years.
