The Post 2020 Biodiversity Framework – EU Support project partners with ICLEI Cities Biodiversity Center (CBC) and ICLEI Mexican, Central American and Caribbean Office (MECS) to organize a multilevel dialogue on the post 2020 biodiversity framework in Mexico. This dialogue is part of a vertical dialogue series organized in 6 project partner countries across May, June and July 2021.
Scheduled on 24 June 2021, the dialogue will feature Mexican States (Mexico DF, Guanajuato, Quintana Roo, Durango, Yucatan) and cities (Merida, Toluca, Aguascalientes, San Nicolas de los Garza) eager to share their best practices and the challenges they face in implementing biodiversity policies locally. They will engage with national representatives of SEMARNAT and CONABIO to bring their contribution to the definition of the Mexican position on the Post 2020 Biodiversity Framework.
Mexico has been the first party to the Convention on Biological Diversity to sign the Edinburgh Declaration, acknowledging the key role of local and subnational government in the framework implementation. For the occasion, the Scottish Government will take the floor and call upon more Mexican local and subnational governments to sign it and support the call for a dedicated & more ambitions decision and renewed plan of action for local and subnational governments.
