The Biodiversity and Community Health (BaCH) Initiative’s partner, the Secretary of the Convention on Biological Diversity (SCBD) formed the Liaison Group of Biodiversity-related Conventions (BLG) in 2004. The BLG aims to reduce overlapping and create synergies between the CBD and other biodiversity conventions. As such, the group invited the International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC) to join as a member. Other members include following conventions: the Convention on Biological Diversity (year of entry into force: 1993), the Convention on Conservation of Migratory Species (1975), the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (1975), the International Treaty on Plant Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture (2004), the Ramsar Convention on Wetlands (1971) and the World Heritage Convention (1972).
