We want you to know what is going on in the BOD, our meetings, our actions, members leaving, the new ones elected,... but text written in this blog cannot be taken an official position or statement of the Society for Conservation Biology. Probably it is not even an official statement of the section... as these need to be approved by the members.

SCB Roadless Areas Initiative Goes Global

Roadlessness is the most cost efficient and effective way to protect biodiversity. With this message, a side event at the 11th Conference of the Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity in Hyderabad, India (8-19 October) brought attention for the first time to the importance of keeping areas road-free to maintain biodiversity and ecosystem services. This event followed a similar event at Rio+20 in Brazil last June that was also organized by Kriton Arsenis, a Member of European Parliament, in collaboration with SCB and other organizations such as IUCN, UNEP, Conservation International and Tebtebba (the Indigenous Peoples' International Centre for Policy Research and Education).
