Seventh Meeting of the Ad Hoc Open-ended Working Group on Article 8(j) and Related Provisions (Article 8(j) WG 7) of the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD)

31 October - 4 November 2011 | Montréal, Canada

Highlights for Thursday, 3 November 2011

On Thursday morning, plenary heard a report from the Article 10(c) Contact Group Co-Chair Tone Solhaug (Norway), who requested more time to complete work on customary sustainable use. Then, Co-Chair Hoshino introduced the in-depth dialogue on ecosystem management, ecosystem services and protected areas, with the Secretariat explaining that the dialogue will be reflected in an annex to the meeting report and inviting submissions on topics for future in-depth dialogues. During the dialogue, participants discussed, inter alia, community mapping of traditional use and occupation, involvement of private sector and indigenous communities in protected areas governance and management, and involvement of indigenous peoples in developing protected area management plans.

In the afternoon, plenary considered a draft recommendation on repatriation of information, including cultural property, in order to facilitate the recovery of traditional knowledge of biodiversity, with discussions focusing on: the aim of proposed guidelines; the relevance of prior informed consent in the context of repatriation of traditional knowledge; the scope of information to be repatriated; and links with the implementation of the Nagoya Protocol. Plenary also considered draft recommendations on: benefit-sharing from, and unlawful appropriation of, traditional knowledge; recommendations from the UN Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues; and sui generis systems for the protection of traditional knowledge.

The contact group on Article 10(c) convened at lunchtime and in the evening.
