Participants from UNEP and South Africa consulting with the CBD Secretariat

The 22nd meeting of the Subsidiary Body on Scientific, Technical and Technological Advice (SBSTTA 22) of the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) reached its halfway point Wednesday in Montreal. Delegates engaged in discussions on the following agenda items:

  •  Biodiversity and climate change: ecosystem-based approaches to climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction;
  •  Invasive alien species;
  •  Conservation and sustainable use of pollinators; and

  • The second work programme of the Intergovernmental Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES).

.A contact group on risk assessment and risk management of living modified organisms met during the lunch break, and contact groups on digital sequence information, and marine and coastal biodiversity met in the evening.

For extensive details on the day’s negotiations and to hear what delegates said in the corridors, see our daily Earth Negotiations Bulletin.
