New dates and venue announced for two critical UN Biodiversity Convention meetings, dates for UN Biodiversity Conference 2020 to be adjusted March 25,2020   |  Source: CBD

Two meetings of the UN Convention on Biological Diversity’s permanent subsidiary
bodies, previously scheduled for May 2020, have tentatively been rescheduled for August and September 2020, respectively.

The twenty-fourth meeting of the Subsidiary Body on Scientific, Technical and Technological Advice (SBSTTA-24) will now be held 25 to 30 August 2020; and the third meeting of the Subsidiary Body on
Implementation (SBI-3) will take place 1 to 6 September 2020. Both meetings will be held in Ottawa, Canada.

In addition, the workshop on the fifth edition of the Global Biodiversity Outlook (GBO-5) will be held on 23 August 2020, open to all participants of the SBSTTA-24 and SBI-3 meetings.

“The Secretariat and the Parties to the Convention take the health and safety of families seriously. These changes maintain the needs of public and personal health while also keeping the momentum towards negotiation of a post 2020 global biodiversity framework,” said Elizabeth Maruma Mrema,
Acting Executive Secretary of the Convention on Biological Diversity.

“In active consultation with the Parties, through the Bureau, and in coordination with the UN Environment Programme and all other UN system actors, we will continue to keep the situation under review.”
