The two-part event, moderated by experts from the French Institute of Sustainable Development and International Relations (IDDRI), opened a space for discussions on synergies between actions for climate and for biodiversity. It identified concrete policy paths for the post-2020 global biodiversity framework including on nature-based solutions, integrated monitoring and review, commitments, etc.
“It is a great pleasure to organize this workshop with IDDRI and the European Climate Fund and to bring together for this webinar leading personalities in the international negotiation communities of both biodiversity and climate change. I am very happy to also see representatives of our project partner countries to bring on the reflection with them ahead of CBD COP 15 and UNFCCC COP 26.” Didier Babin, Team Leader Post 2020 Biodiversity Framework – EU support
It also allowed participants to openly share views in an informal way, with a view to enabling common ground prior to the many rounds of negotiation set to be held in 2021.
This workshop is part of a series of events opening a space for informal discussion enabling the main stakeholders to the CBD to share information and best practices, and to develop their positions regarding key topics of the post-2020 global biodiversity framework.
