[CBO] Cities and Biodiversity Outlook - Action and Policy 기사를 twitter로 보내기 기사를 facebook으로 보내기 2013.02.13





"By 2050, the world will have undergone the largest and fastest period of urban expansion in
human history, having significant implications for biodiversity and ecosystems if current trends
continue.
 
Drawing on contributions from more than 120 scientists worldwide, the CBO states that over
60 percent of the land projected to become urban by 2030 has yet to be built. This presents a
major opportunity to greatly improve global sustainability by promoting low-carbon, resource-
efficient urban development that can reduce adverse effects on biodiversity and improve quality of
life, it says. The CBO also demonstrates how sub-national and local authorities can play a central role
in achieving the Aichi Biodiversity Targets.
 
The CBD Secretariat, the Stockholm Resilience Centre (SRC) and ICLEI are very proud to announce
the launch of the first global assessment of urbanization, biodiversity and ecosystem services! You
are all invited to join us in this celebration! Please see below the different occasions in which the
CBO will be presented in at CBD COP 11."
