Countdown 2010 - Save Biodiversity
Title: Countdown 2010 - Save Biodiversity
Title abbreviated: Countdown 2010
Creator: IUCN – The International Union for Conservation of Nature / Regional Office for Pan-Europe (ROfE) / Countdown 2010 Secretariat
Abstract: Countdown 2010 is a powerful network of active partners working together towards the 2010 Biodiversity Target. Each partner commits to specific efforts to tackle the causes of biodiversity loss. The Countdown 2010 Secretariat – hosted by the IUCN Regional Office for Pan-Europe – facilitates and encourages action, promotes the importance of the 2010 Biodiversity Target and assesses progress towards 2010. An Assembly of all Partners meets annually to review the overall direction of Countdown 2010. Countdown 2010 is guided by a core Advisory Board. Countdown 2010 was launched at the stakeholder conference “Sustaining Livelihoods and Biodiversity: Attaining the 2010 Target in the European Biodiversity Strategy” in Malahide, Ireland in 2004. This conference resulted in the Message of Malahide which today forms the foundation of the European Commission’s Biodiversity Communication. Countdown 2010 mobilizes action to ensure that all governments and members of civil society, at every level, have taken the necessary actions to halt the loss of biodiversity by 2010.
