Biodiversity: The Original Life Support System

esaiEnvironmental Sciences Association of Ireland 2009 Photography Competition Biodiversity: The Original Life Support System”

“Biodiversity is the source of the medicines that heal us, the food that sustains us, the forests that shelter us. It is the basis for our stories and legends. Our cultures are founded upon the environments and ecosystems in which our civilizations emerged.”

Dr. Ahmed Djoghlaf, Executive Secretary of the UN Convention on Biological Diversity

The UN Convention on Biological Diversity has three objectives: the conservation of biological diversity; the sustainable use of its components; and the equitable sharing of the benefits arising out of the utilisation of genetic resources. The Convention is aiming to secure a significant reduction in the current rate of loss of biodiversity across the globe by 2010. To focus the world’s attention, the UN has designated 2010 as the International Year of Biodiversity.
