Protect the Nature

Global loss of biodiversity continues to be alarming. The main causes of biodiversity loss include deforestation, changes in habitat and land degradation, which are often linked to the growing impact of climate change. The negative impact of human on the nature of the planet has a long history, but never had the change and the violation did not have such high-quality structures and did not occur as rapidly as in our time. The modern world-economic strategy has potentially included the global environmental crisis. The main danger is the preservation of mutual stimulation of population growth and resource consumption in this situation. It is forgotten that the majority of natural resources are not only for people, but also for the nature in the first place.
Another threat, which has focused attention in the framework of the International Year of Biodiversity was the spread of invasive alien species.
The decisive step in the conservation of biodiversity has been on the UN Conference on Environment and Development which held in Rio de Janeiro in 1992. Conscious of the intrinsic value of biological diversity and also ecological, genetic, social, economic, scientific, educational, cultural, recreational and aesthetic values ​​of its components, the importance of biological diversity for evolution and conservation, it was understood that the conservation of biological diversity is a common concern of humankind .
Reaffirming that countries have sovereign rights over their own biological resources, and that all countries are responsible for conserving their biological diversity and the sustainable use of their biological resources has been established by the Convention on Biological Diversity. By 1993, it entered into force as an international instrument, at the end of 1995 has been ratified by nearly 120 countries, including the Republic of Uzbekistan.
Our country has acceded to the Convention to Combat Desertification, the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES), the Convention on Migratory Species, the Ramsar Convention on Wetlands of International Importance especially as Waterfowl Habitat. All this facilitates complex measures for the conservation and enhancement of biological diversity.
