Lack of biodiversity conservation funding

Other Names:
Lack of resources for supporting biological diversity projects

Developed countries are not complying with their commitments under the Convention of Biological Diversity, as established in Article 20(2) and thus they are hindering the implementation of the Convention. At the same time they are not permitting developing countries to comply with their commitments. The European Union (EU) acknowledged in their closing statement that adequate funding was necessary to fully implement national strategies, which they saw as crucial to the attainment of the objectives of the Convention. Why then are they not coming out with funding, if they are genuine in their concern?
