The Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) will host the 2020 UN Biodiversity Conference in Kunming, China, on 17-30 May 2021.
CBD COP15 will review the achievement and delivery of the CBD’s Strategic Plan for Biodiversity 2011-2020. It is also anticipated that the final decision on the post-2020 global biodiversity framework will be taken, together with decisions on related topics such as capacity building and resource mobilization.
As part of the process to develop the post-2020 framework, negotiations will be held in the context of an open-ended intersessional working group. The first working group meeting met in Nairobi, Kenya, on 27-30 August 2019. The second meeting will be held in Kunming, China, on 24-28 February 2020 and the third meeting is expected to convene on 27-31 July 2020 in Colombia.

Webinar on the report of the informal Co-Chairs’ Advisory Group on Digital Sequence Information on genetic resources (DSI IAG)
The US Nagoya Protocol Action Group has partnered with the American Institute of Biological Sciences to run a workshop series this late summer and Fall. The workshop will feature some amazing scientists who are working in the US, Australia, South Africa, Brazil, Israel, Mexico, China, and Indonesia. We’re focusing on how we share genetic data like DNA to mutually benefit and to benefit the biodiversity of our planet. We’re hammering the details out now but we would love it if you could share news of this workshop with your colleagues at summer meetings. People can sign up here: io.aibs.org/nagoya
From https://www.cbd.int/dsi-gr/: The Conference of the Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity and the Conference of the Parties serving as the meeting of the Parties to the Nagoya Protocol first addressed the issue of digital sequence information on genetic resources at their respective meetings held in December 2016. At its most recent meeting, the Conference of the Parties adopted decision 14/20 which noted the divergence of views of Parties on this matter and decided to establish a science and policy-based process, which included the convening of an Ad Hoc Technical Expert Group (AHTEG).
