the Philippines;

The 22nd meeting of the Subsidiary Body on Scientific, Technical and Technological Advice (SBSTTA 22) of the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) continued Friday with the consideration of conference room papers (CRPs) based on the discussions held earlier in the week. CRPs were discussed in plenary during morning, afternoon, and evening sessions on the following agenda items:

  • Protected areas and other effective area-based conservation measures;
  • Invasive alien species;
  • Conservation and sustainable use of pollinators;
  • The second work programme of the Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES); and
  • Biodiversity and climate change.

The contact group on digital sequence information met at lunchtime. A Friends of the Chair meeting to resolve three outstanding paragraphs in the CRP on synthetic biology also met and reported back to plenary on Friday night.

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