Delhi Greens welcomes all its members, subscribers and readers to a happy and warm New Year! 2012 will be challenging not only because Delhi will play host to the Rio+20 COP this year but also because the now 100 year ‘young’ “Delhi capital” enters the next phase of its existence as the political nerve center of the world’s largest democracy.
India is hosting the eleventh Conference of the Parties (CoP-11) to the Convention on Biological Diversity which will be the first CoP in the UNDB giving India the opportunity to take the world into a more diverse future!
In definition, biodiversity collectively refers to variation at all levels of biological organization. In our daily life, it is everywhere around us! It doesn’t matter if you live in a city, a town or a village, you are always surrounded by some degree of biodiversity and your survival on this Planet is ensured by the services provided by it.
