|Progress on the International Initiative for the Conservation and Sustainable Use of Pollinators COP-11 Hyderabad, India|
The International Pollinators Initiative is, of course, not an institution but is the result of effort, achievements and initiatives of people committed to the conservation and sustainable use of pollinators, around the world.
The aim of the International Initiative for the Conservation and Sustainable Use of Pollinators (IPI) is to promote coordinated action worldwide to:
· monitor pollinator decline, its causes and its impact on pollination services;
· address the lack of taxonomic information on pollinators;
· assess the economic value of pollination and the economic impact of the decline of pollination services; and
· promote the conservation, restoration and sustainable use of pollinator diversity in agriculture and related ecosystems.
FAO in its role of facilitating and coordinating the initiative has prepared two reports back to the Convention on progress in the implementation of the IPI in 2008 and 2010; these documents are attached. We anticipate facilitating further reports and welcome messages from other initiatives and people updating us on activities and progress.
