In 1992 the United Nations global Convention on Biological Diversity was signed in Rio de Janeiro. All parties shall follow-up the intentions of the Convention in their own activities in strategies, plans and policies.
This report contains an analysis of the follow-up activities performed during 1996 by the 18 EEA Member Countries. It concludes that the follow-up process and activities were not easy for any country and that all countries are trying to develop the follow-up work in different ways to reach the goal of safeguarding biodiversity for our future through sustainable and cross-sectorial initiatives.
The report was produced by the Institute of Terrestrial Ecology, UK, for the European Environment Agency (EEA).
