This book discusses the Commonwealth Science Council’s programme on biological diversity and genetic resources and aims to contribute significantly towards establishing relevant mechanisms and developing practical action plans for conserving and sustainably using our rapidly vanishing biological diversity.



Guidelines for Developing the Commonwealth Biological Diversity and Genetic Resources Project

To ensure that all member countries follow the same underlying methodology, guidelines were prepared for each component of the BDGR project. These were based on research work undertaken during the period 1975-85. They were discussed and accepted at the first International Workshop on Biological Diversity and Genetic Resources held in 1986, and have been used for developing national status reports and individual projects within the various components of the programme.
