St. Vincent became a party to the United Nations Convention on Biological Diversity (UNCBD) in 1992. Reporting to the UNCBD is required every four years with the objective of providing information on measures taken for the implementation of the Convention and the effectiveness of these measures. The Fourth National Biodiversity Report will also help to identify the lessons learnt, the gaps in capacity and needs of St Vincent and the Grenadines. The report outlines:

  • Chapter I: Overview of Biodiversity Status, Trends and Threats.
  • Chapter II: Current Status of National Biodiversity Strategies and Action Plans.
  • Chapter III: Sub-national Planning and Mainstreaming of Biodiversity.
  • Chapter IV: Conclusions - Progress Towards the 2010 Target.

The report, and other documents, can be found here: http://www.cbd.int/countries/?country=vc
