CBDThe eighth meeting of the Ad-Hoc Open-ended Intersessional Working Group (WG) on Article 8(j) (traditional knowledge) and Related Provisions of the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) will convene from 7-11 October 2013 in Montreal, Canada. It will be held back-to-back with the seventeenth meeting of the CBD Subsidiary Body on Scientific, Technical and Technological Advice (SBSTTA) convening from 14-18 October 2013.

The Article 8(j) WG will address: a progress report on the implementation of the work programme on Article 8(j) and related provisions, and mechanisms to promote the effective participating of indigenous and local communities (ILCs) in CBD work; a draft action plan for customary sustainable use; proposed best-practice guidelines facilitating enhancement of repatriation of traditional knowledge; a study on how tasks 7, 10 and 12 of the Article 8(j) work programme (benefit-sharing from and unlawful appropriation of traditional knowledge) contribute to the work under the CBD and the Nagoya Protocol; sui generis systems for the protection, preservation and promotion of traditional knowledge; and recommendations from the UN Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues. The Working Group will also feature an in-depth dialogue on connecting traditional knowledge systems and science, such as IPBES, including gender dimensions. The Working Group is expected to produce draft recommendations for consideration by the next meeting of the CBD Conference of the Parties (COP).

SBSTTA 17 is expected to: draw general conclusions on the scientific and technical needs related to the implementation of the Biodiversity Strategic Plan and Aichi Targets; consider ways to enhance its role in assessing the effectiveness of measures taken in accordance with CBD provisions; consider contributions to the intersessional process of the Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES); and consider progress reports by the CBD Secretariat. SBSTTA 17 is expected to produce conclusions and recommendations for further work, including inputs to the IPBES work plan, that may inform the work of the CBD COP, SBSTTA itself, the CBD Secretariat, partner organizations, the research community and funding agencies.
