The Oceania Pollinator Initiative

The Oceania Pollinator Initiative (OPI) is part of the International Pollinator Initiative (IPI).  In 1996 the Conference of the Parties of the Convention of Biological Diversity (CBD) made pollinators a priority in the program “Conservation and Sustainable Use of Agricultural Biological Diversity”.

In 1998 the Sao Paulo declaration proposed a framework for IPI and subsequently the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) became the coordinators of the IPI network.  So far, 5 regional IPI's have been established (Europe, North America, Africa and Brazil) with OPI the newest initiative.
