CBD On Saturday, the plenary of the CBD Working Group on Article 8(j) heard a report of Friday’s deliberations in the Friends of the Chair group on future work, and participated in an in-depth dialogue on the contribution of traditional knowledge of indigenous peoples and local communities to the implementation of the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda with special emphasis on the conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity. The Working Group adopted six recommendations and the meeting report.

CBD Executive Secretary Paşca Palmer considered the participation of indigenous peoples and local communities in the Convention critical for assessing implementation on the ground and for developing new arrangements to save biodiversity globally. Working Group Co-chair Ochoa, Mexico on behalf of COP 13 Presidency, stated that the guidelines on traditional knowledge repatriation and the glossary will help develop a common approach across the Convention; and gaveled the meeting to a close at 1:19 pm.
