Aiming the support of National and Regional Business and Biodiversity Initiatives, the Secretariat of the Convention on Biological Diversity (SCBD) organizes annual meetings which gather all Initiative’s representatives.
The 2013 meeting, organized by SCBD in partnership with the Canadian Business and Biodiversity Council, will be held in Montreal on 2-3 October.
The meeting’s objectives are the following:
- To provide businesses and other stakeholders with concrete information and case studies related to COP decisions and sector-specific issues, thereby encouraging and facilitating mainstreaming of biodiversity in their general activities;
- To provide businesses and other stakeholders with a forum for feedback and recommendations for future COPs and therefore allowing them input with regard to the formulation of decisions in this area; and
- To strengthen the Global Partnership by bringing together national and regional initiatives.
