COP15 Event Highlights Green Finance and Production Landscapes for Effective Area-based Conservation


As part of the UN Biodiversity Conference (CBD COP15) in Montreal, UNU-IAS, host of the IPSI Secretariat, co-organised an event on 8 December 2022 focused on Other Effective Area-based Conservation Measures (OECMs). It explored the financial and economic factors affecting the identification, management, and effectiveness of OECMs that include human productive areas. The event advanced discussions on OECMs and socio-ecological production landscapes and seascapes (SEPLS) as part of a project implemented by Conservation International (CI) and UNU-IAS, which had progressed in earlier CBD meetings. Held at the Nature Positive Pavilion, the event was organised in partnership with CI.
