One of the two conventions signed at the Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro in 1992, the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) seeks to "conserve biological diversity, use biological resources sustainably -- to ensure that we do not use up our resources faster than they can recover, and share the benefits arising from the use of genetic resources fairly and equitably." This site, a link off of the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew main site, provides the complete CBD for Botanists. Offered in several pdf documents that are downloadable in English, French, and Spanish, the CBD for Botanists is actually a series of slides and notes -- essentially a presentation. The site notes that the presentation "is designed to be a flexible training tool, adaptable to different audiences, but can also be read for practical guidance on implementation." Included are suggestions for where to find more information, links, and further reading on the subject.
