On Day 7 of the Rio Conventions Pavilion, various actors working on capacity building in the biodiversity sector held a series of interactive dialogues and workshops.
Themes covered in the morning and afternoon included:
- ‘Building Capacity Beyond 2020’ – a reflection on capacity building experiences over the past decade of implementation to critically understand successes, failures, and key takeaways;
- Identifying and informing future actions to support the implementation of the Post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework (Post-2020 Framework) and the Post-2020 Long-Term Strategic Framework for Capacity Building;
- The biodiversity mitigation hierarchy as a tool for engaging industry and finance in effective biodiversity management; and
- Emerging industry trends and technologies in biodiversity data collection, sharing and monitoring that have the potential to improve our ability to effectively implement the mitigation hierarchy.
In the evening, PANORAMA – Solutions for a Healthy Planet, a multi-thematic, multi-partner initiative for learning and knowledge management, convened an event to highlight its contribution to global policy targets around key COP14 agenda items, such as ecosystem-based adaptation, protected and conserved areas, marine and coastal issues and sustainable agriculture. The morning segment was organized by the UN Environment Programme (UN Environment) in collaboration with the CBD, the Global Environment Facility (GEF), the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN), the UN Development Programme (UNDP), the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) Secretariat, the Secretariat of the Pacific Regional Environment Programme (SPREP), the UN Environment Programme World Conservation Monitoring Centre (UNEP-WCMC), and the African Elephant Fund.The Mitigation Hierarchy and Emerging Technologies Workshop was co-organized by the Cross-Sector Biodiversity Initiative (CSBI) and the Equator Principles Association.
