Organized by the Government of Scotland, the Convention on Biological Diversity, and in collaboration with Regions4, the European Committee of the Regions, ICLEI and the Government of Quebec, the workshop will take place on 1-3 April 2020 at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Edinburgh. The Thematic Workshop is part of the preparations for the post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework.

This workshop is designed  to bring together a globally balanced representation of Sub-National, Regional and Local Governments from across the world to:

  • undertake knowledge exchange and sharing of information with respect to implementing the actions and enabling conditions to meet the aims and ambitions of the post-2020 global biodiversity framework;
  • provide constructive outcomes for the Co-Chairs of the Open-ended Working Group on the Post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework, for consideration in their future work on the post-2020 global biodiversity framework, as well as for the agenda of the third meeting of the Subsidiary Body on Implementation of the CBD.

Registration available soon.
