IPSI Activities at CBD COP 14
The Fourteenth Meeting of the Conference of the Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD COP 14) will be held from 17-29 November 2018 in Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt. The COP meeting is the major biennial event of the governing body of the CBD, and the IPSI Secretariat looks forward to taking part in the meeting and collaborating with many IPSI members and friends.
The IPSI Secretariat itself will be a co-organizer with our partners in two side events:
• Saturday, 17 November at 13:15, on "Socio-Ecological Production Landscapes and Seascapes for Biodiversity and Livelihood: Roles in Post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework", led by Conservation International (https://www.cbd.int/side-events/2728)
• Monday, 19 November at 18:15, on “Consolidation and Replication of Effective Landscape Approaches for Biodiversity Conservation and Human Livelihoods”, led by the IPSI Secretariat (https://www.cbd.int/side-events/2812)
We will also have a display booth in the CEPA Fair section, and will take part in other events held concurrently with the COP meeting. This will be a great opportunity to disseminate the outcomes of the recent IPSI-7 Global Conference, as IPSI committed to do in the "Ishikawa Statement 2018", an outcome of IPSI-7.
We are sure that many readers will be attending and holding activities at CBD COP 14. Please contact the IPSI Secretariat and let us know about your plans, so that we as a partnership can make the most of this major event and work toward mainstreaming the concepts of the Satoyama Initiative in important international policymaking processes. We look forward to seeing many of you there.
