Defra invests £8.5m in worldwide conservation

The Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs will invest £8.5 million in 33 conservation and biodiversity projects worldwide, as part of its Darwin Initiative programme.

The announcement came on 6 March, the 20th birthday of the Darwin Initiative. It was set up at the time of the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (the Rio summit) in 1992 to help poorer countries with rich biodiversity meet their objectives under the Convention on Biological Diversity; the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora; and the Convention on the Conservation of Migratory Species of Wild Animals.
