This is co-organised by UNU-IAS, host of the IPSI Secretariat, the Ministry of the Environment of Japan, and the Global Environment Outreach Centre (GEOC), with the support of the Japan Committee for United Nations Decade on Biodiversity. It will feature the latest updates on developing the post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework and initiatives undertaken in Japan.
