Stakeholder Open Webinars on the Post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework
Informal webinar organized by the Secretariat of the Convention on Biological Diversity
The Co-Chairs of the Open-ended Working Group on the Post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework (WG2020), Mr. Francis Ogwal (Uganda) and Mr. Basile van Havre (Canada), are organizing a series of informal “Stakeholder Open Webinars” to explore with Parties and stakeholders the key concepts and issues for the development of the post-2020 global biodiversity framework. This series of webinars is intended to provide an important – and ongoing – opportunity for Parties and stakeholders to engage in a constructive exchange of views and perspectives, and enhance their understanding of elements related to the post-2020 global biodiversity framework, taking into consideration key related messages from the fifth edition of the Global Biodiversity Outlook (GBO-5).
The first meeting in the Stakeholder Open Webinar series will be on the theme of “Exploring linkages between climate change and biodiversity for the development of post-2020 global biodiversity framework.” Participants will examine the linkages between the issues of climate change and biodiversity, and ways to improve synergies between climate change and biodiversity conservation actions, and enhance coordination between the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD). The webinar is envisioned as a space for participants to explore issues, exchange views, and enhance their understanding of these key topics. The webinar will focus on the following themes:
- Understanding the ‘Big Picture’ of climate change and biodiversity
- Building better bridges between UNFCCC and CBD
