Folder About

This website is the Belgian contribution to the Clearing-House Mechanism (CHM) under the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD). It was originally launched in 1996 and has undergone many changes since  then.

The objectives of the website are to:

  • deliver information on the Convention on Biological Diversity and its implementation in Belgium;
  • provide on-line versions of Belgian strategic documents related to the Convention (national reports, strategies, actions plans, etc.);
  • offer information on the status of biodiversity in Belgium;
  • make links to Internet-based biodiversity information in Belgium;
  • offer a window for scientific and technical cooperation in the field of biodiversity;
  • promote public awareness and education on biodiversity.

The website is maintained by the Royal Belgian Institute of Natural Sciences, in its quality of Belgian National Focal Point to the Clearing-House Mechanism.

Any person involved in the implementation of the Convention on Biological Diversity in Belgium can contribute to the content of the website. A request to participate can be sent to the CHM Focal Point at cbd-chm[at]
