Is the CBD promoting environmentally friendly solutions to pest control

The Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) was established in 1992 with three objectives: 1) to conserve nature, 2) to sustainably use biodiversity, and 3) to ensure access and fair and equitable sharing of the benefits arising from the use of the biodiversity.

In this contribution, the authors (who are members of the "Global Commission on Biological Control and Access and Benefit Sharing" of the International Organization for Biological Control, IOBC) examine the effects of the CBD on the work of classical and augmentative biocontrol around the world.
