SBI 2 participants were welcomed by a traditional Mohawk performance during a reception hosted by the
CBD Secretariat

The second meeting of the Subsidiary Body on Implementation (SBI 2) of the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) opened on Monday, following the 22nd meeting of the Subsidiary Body on Scientific, Technical and Technological Advice (SBSTTA 22) and a Sunday seminar on transformational change for the biodiversity agenda.

Delegates heard opening remarks, addressed organizational matters, and engaged in discussions on:

  • review of progress in the implementation of the Convention and the Strategic Plan 2011-2020;
  • assessment and review of the effectiveness of the Nagoya Protocol on access and benefit-sharing (ABS); and
  • mainstreaming of biodiversity within and across sectors, and other strategic actions to enhance implementation.

In the evening, an opening reception was held on the theme “Indigenous peoples, local communities and the future of biodiversity.”

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