Biological Diversity is the variety of life on Earth, from the simplest bacterial gene to the vast, complex rainforests of the Amazon. Human beings are an integral part of this diversity, as is the food, medicine, clothing and other biological resources that sustain us. Biodiversity is being threatened at an unprecedented rate due to habitat alternation, degradation and fragmentation and human misuses or over-exploitation. It is therefore not surprising that biodiversity conservation in recent years has gained considerable importance all over the globe. On the other hand, every country, particularly the developing countries, is facing the needs of developing its economy, improving peoples' livelihood or providing food security and supply for a rapidly increasing population.

The driving forces of increased human population, consumption, habitat destruction and degradation, contaminants, and invasive species have been joined by dangerous global climate disruption, globalization, poverty, political instability and other rapid environmental and social changes. There is an urgent need for scientists, conservationists and policymakers to re-examine the biodiversity issue. We need to look broadly at the many scientific discoveries and the many issues involving the use, abuse and conservation of biodiversity including cultivated as well as wild species and ecosystems.

The Second World Congress on Biodiversity will provide a forum for reorienting policies and programs in more productive and sustainable biodiversity Utilization and conservation. After the United Nation Conference on Environment and Development was held in Rio in 1991, many countries have formulated or are implementing a series of action plans associated with their own environmental protection, biodiversity conservation and priority development. Judicious planning and meticulous implementation of different innovative programs of United Nations, Governments, and Research institutions, Private Organizations, Universities and NGOs have paved the way for the conservation of biological diversity on our earth.
