Monitoring and measuring progress in biodiversity conservation (March 2010)


31st March 2010

The Darwin Initiative workshop took place on 31st March 2010 at the Zoological Society of London. It was opened by Eric Blencowe, the head of the International Biodiversity Policy Unit of Defra, which houses the Darwin Secretariat.

Project staff from all Darwin projects, past and present, were invited to attend this workshop to present on, and discuss the issues surrounding ‘Monitoring and Measuring Progress in Biodiversity Conservation’. This was seen as a pertinent subject given that this is the International Year of Biodiversity and this year is also the year that the CBD had intended for the 2010 biodiversity target to be achieved.
