From Idea to Realization: BGCI's Manual on Planning, Developing, and Managing Botanic Gardens

With an awareness of the global multilateral environmental agreements (or ‘MEAs’) that shape many national laws and conservation initiatives, botanic garden managers can develop policies that foster outward-looking partnerships, support legal compliance, and connect with governments. This manual introduces several MEAs that are particularly relevant to botanic gardens, with a focus on the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) and the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD).
