5th National Report on Biological Diversity
Gruner Ltd's environmental team has prepared the 5th national report by the Swiss Confederation regarding implementation of the UN Convention on Biological Diversity. The report concludes that the diversity of species and ecosystems in Switzerland remains under great pressure. Only in the area of genetic resources in agriculture could a sound conservation basis be found. A lot of work needs to be done in order to achieve the international targets set for 2020 for conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity.
This report is the result of close cooperation with federal offices, the scientific community, NGOs and other organizations involved.
