The Trondheim Conference on Biodiversity this July
Read CBD Executive Secretary Dr. Cristiana Paşca Palmer’s opening statements HERE.
The report produced at the conference will be soon available HERE.
From the conference website:
“Since 1993 Trondheim Conferences on Biodiversity have created opportunities for increasing understanding amongst stakeholders about issues on the biodiversity agenda. They allow those involved in setting the agenda to learn and to share views and experiences with their peers.
The ninth Trondheim Conference will bring together decision-makers and experts from around the world to learn about and discuss knowledge and know-how for the global post-2020 biodiversity framework. The Conference will directly support the process established by the Convention on Biological Diversity for preparing this framework, with opportunities for major players to discuss key issues informally outside of the negotiation process.”
