The Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) is an international treaty that seeks to sustain the rich diversity of life on Earth. The Secretariat of the Convention on Biological Diversity (SCBD) was established to support the goals of the Convention and currently maintains the CBD website.
The CBD website hosts a great deal of information relevant to its cause, including a calendar of biodiversity-related events and a list of NFPs. NFPs (National Focal Points) are points of contact within governments for communications regarding the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).
The CBD website hosts an API that lets users search for Events or NFPs by selection criteria or to retrieve one in particular by using its UniqueID. This API functions using SOAP calls issued in XML format.
The following is a list of historical changes that were made to this asset. Typically, once an API is published on ProgrammableWeb.com, the data we keep about that asset gets updated over the course of its life. For example, the endpoint or home page of the documentation might change. As a means of enforcing the integrity of our data, every time a non-trivial change is made to the data we keep about an asset, we require the entry of some changelog text before that change can be saved. This way, we have a great audit trail of all activity surrounding the asset. For each asset, the changelogs begins with the moment an asset is approved for publication on ProgrammableWeb. If you spot an error in our data and believe that a record needs to be updated in some way, the ProgrammableWeb team would very much like to hear from you at firstname.lastname@example.org
