Focal Points installed under the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) in general operate far from the spotlights of the media. The activities of these official structures are therefore too little known.
For this reason, the Belgian CBD National Focal Point is willing to share its experiences with others, by launching a new series entitled News Bulletin of the Belgian CBD NFP. This publication will report regularly on the whats, hows and whys of the Belgian CBD NFP activities and outputs. We expect to publish the bulletin once a year, but we may produce occasional advance releases to share breaking news, announce special events or introduce particular topics to our readers.
All available issues of our News Bulletin can be downloaded here:
