BGEN’s work helps to support Target 8 of the Global Strategy for Plant Conservation.
The GSPC highlights the importance of plants and the ecosystem services they provide for all life on earth, and aims to ensure their conservation. It consists of 16 outcome-oriented targets for conservation with a deadline of 2010. Target 8 is especially relevant to BGEN’s work and the work of our members. Target 14 calls for “the importance of plant diversity and the need for its conservation incorporated into communication, educational and public-awareness programmes.”
