International Day for Biological Diversity

22 May has been celebrated as the International Day for Biological Diversity since 2001. This is in commemoration of 22 May 1992, the date of the adoption of the agreed text of the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD). At the end of 2000, the United Nations decided to move the day from 29 December, the day the Convention entered into force in 1993, to May. The aims of the convention are the conservation and sustainable use of biological diversity, access to and the fair and equitable sharing of the benefits arising from the use of genetic resources.
