BBP Annual Report 2009

11 May 2010 | News story

"On the Move" is the title of the Annual Report of the Business and Biodiversity Programme

The report reflects the progress made by BBP last year. The stories selected are a balanced representation of BBP’s work in 2009 to deliver the IUCN programme for 2009-2012. Intrinsically linked to biodiversity are four of humankind’s greatest challenges and the four focus areas of the IUCN programme: climate change, energy, livelihoods and economics. The performance assessment at the end of the report shows progress against the planned annual results.
