Policy Brief: How do Parties report to the Convention on Biological Diversity on genetic diversity and how can reporting and monitoring be improved?

Together with colleagues from other initiatives such as IUCN Conservation Genetics Specialist Group, Conservation Genetics Group of the Society for Conservation Biology and the Genetic Composition Group of GEO-BON we compiled a scientific paper about how the 5th and 6th CBD National Reports address the genetic dimension of diversity. We translated the PB into several languages. You're kindly invited to share and distribute
