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).
