The objective of the national workshops is to facilitate a platform to share ideas and contributions on the national process leading to post-2020. The first of those events took place in August 2019 just before the first OEWG. It focused on access and benefit sharing (ABS) and digital sequence information (DSI) as well as natural capital accounting/mapping of ecosystems.
Participants from ministries, departments, agencies, academia, research institutions, representatives from the private sector, IPLCs, NGOs as well as focal points of several multilateral environmental agreements (MEAs) attended this second national workshop.
