    Abstract Many things must have been on the minds of the approximately 6,000 delegates attending COP11 — not least of all, the painful failure to meet the 2010 biodiversity target of attaining “a significant reduction of the current rate of biodiversity loss at the global, regional and national level as a contribution to poverty alleviation and to the benefit of all life on Earth”. But the thousands of delegates gathering for CBD COP11 and the handful of people working on that distant hilltop were both important pieces in a critically important puzzle that was being assembled on the basis of optimism and shared commitment to improving people’s lives while preserving the planet for future generations.
