UNEP’s World Conservation Monitoring Centre (UNEP-WCMC) will be showcasing plans for a new on-line portal at the 16th Meeting of the Conference of Parties to CITES (CoP) in Thailand from 3–14 March. The new integrated species information platform, known as Species+, will enable Parties to search CITES species lists and databases of legal trade in CITES-listed species more quickly and interactively than ever before, when complete.
Scientists from Microsoft Research and the United Nations Environment Programme World Conservation Monitoring Centre (UNEP-WCMC) are developing the first general-purpose computer model of whole ecosystems, across the entire world. In a recent Nature article (Time to Model all Life on Earth), the authors argue that this type of model could radically improve our understanding of the biosphere and inform policy decisions about biodiversity and conservation.
UNEP-WCMC supports the United Nations Decade on Biodiversity 2011-2020.
