Governing Global Biodiversity
Published on the 10th anniversary of the signing of the biodiversity convention in 2002, Governing Global Biodiversity is a compilation of researched essays on the history and evolution of the UN Convention on Biological Diversity, and is aimed a decision-makers.
Desiree McGraw's chapter on how the Convention came to be agreed is full of insights and perhaps among the best available on this subject. Equally impressive is Catherine Potvin's essay that compares indigenous peoples' views on the value of biodiversity with those of the scientific community.
