Eighth meeting of the Ad Hoc Open-ended Working Group on Access and Benefit-sharing of the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD ABS 8)

9-15 November 2009 | Montréal, Canada
 

CBD

Highlights for Sunday, 15 November 2009

The closing plenary convened at 11:00 am. The Working Group adopted the report of the meeting, the Montreal Annex including a consolidated draft on the international regime, and a second annex on proposals for operational texts left in abeyance for consideration at the next meeting of the Working Group. The Working Group also established an intersessional process leading up to ABS 9, consisting of two distinct meetings: a Friends of the Co-Chairs group to convene in late January 2010; and a Co-Chairs' inter-regional informal consultation to convene in March 2010.


The newly formed “Like-Minded in Spirit Group of Women.”
