2013: Water and Biodiversity

Water is essential for all life on Earth. It is a basic requirement for the health and well-being of humans, and the ecosystems and natural processes upon which we all depend.

The Convention on Biological Diversity 2013 theme ‘Water and Biodiversity’ corresponds with the United Nations International Year of Water Coooperation. The theme also coincides with the UN 2005-2015 International Decade for Action ‘WATER FOR LIFE’.

Resources related to annual themes, including messages, booklets, logos, and other information are available at the UN Convention on Biological Diversity web site.
