Convention on Biological Diversity API

Note: The Convention on Biological Diversity API is no longer available.
This profile is retained for historical purposes only.

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.
