The CBD presents a clear mandate to the Parties for national policy reform, posing an enormous challenge for governments. To date, the slow pace of government policy reform is hampering implementation of the Convention. A key constraint to policy reform is that national decisionmakers' often lack the information they need to determine which policies support the Convention's objectives, which policies should be changed, and which new policies are needed. Policy research provides this information and analysis, assisting all stakeholders to fully explore all the biodiversity management issues and policy choices confronting them.
