Ahead of the Open Ended Working Group 3 (OEWG3), the two dialogues organized across two plenary and breakout group sessions gathered over 60 participants, LAC CBD negotiators and regional experts. It created an informal and neutral space for a deeper multi-stakeholder conversation and reflection on issues that remain unresolved in the post-2020 GBF draft one released by the Convention on Biological Diversity earlier in July. All the discussions were held under Chatham House rules.
More specifically, the dialogues sessions focused on identifying concrete elements among Goals & Targets and Resource Mobilization sections, including on gaps and opportunities of Draft 1 that are relevant for LAC region countries; and ways in which countries and stakeholders in LAC region can improve to the development of the post-2020 GBF and its operationalization.
The report issued after the dialogue forms part of the Information Document made available by the CBD for OEWG3.
