The convention on Biological Diversity was opened for signature on 5 June 1992 at the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development. Currently, 193 parties are members of the Convention. The main goals are ”the conservation of biological diversity, the sustainable use of its components and the fair and equitable sharing of the benefits from the use of genetic resources”.
