Seventh Trondheim Conference on Biodiversity

On Thursday, participants heard presentations on trajectories towards 2020. The session was chaired by Asghar Fazel, ECO Institute of Environmental Science and Technology, Iran, and former SBSTTA Chair.

Ines Verleye, Federal Public Service for the Environment, Belgium, presented on resource mobilization for the Aichi targets, highlighting the need for a structured, country-based approach to enable ministries of environment and other biodiversity actors to use nationally the information generated at the global level. Katia Karousakis, Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), shared the results from an OECD study on “Scaling-up Finance Mechanisms for Biodiversity.” Claudia Ituarte-Lima, Resilience and Development Programme (SwedBio) at Stockholm Resilience Centre, Sweden, examined the state of safeguards for biodiversity. Brigitte Baptiste, Director General, Humboldt Institute, Colombia, presented on the ecological dimension in developing sustainable development goals, focusing on the understanding of “awareness.” Lucy Mulenkey, Director, Indigenous Information Network, said that while the Strategic Plan is crucial for mainstreaming biodiversity in government policy, indigenous peoples and local communities already have a long history of mainstreaming biodiversity in their own lives. David Cooper, CBD Secretariat, underscored that the post-2015 agenda and the discussions on sustainable development goals are major opportunities to mainstream biodiversity into sustainable development.

In the afternoon, participants took part in a second roundtable exercise, addressing questions on Aichi targets 3 (incentives) and 4 (sustainable production and consumption).
