The U.S. Department of State will host a virtual stakeholder listening session on Thursday, March 3, at 2pm EST to hear views regarding “digital sequence information” (DSI) on genetic resources in preparation for upcoming resumed subsidiary meetings of the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD). The 3rd session of the CBD Working Group on the Post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework will resume with an in-person meeting in Geneva March 14 – 29. At this meeting, participants will consider options and approaches for addressing access and benefit sharing on DSI.
We invite stakeholders to join a listening session to share their views on DSI and the CBD process for addressing this topic. Each participating organization will be given 2 minutes to speak.
