WGRI 4

In the morning plenary, the Chairs of the contact groups reported on progress in their sessions, with Co-Chair Bignell noting the “good spirit and humor” in Contact Group I and Co-Chair Verleye commenting on Contact Group II’s “good collaboration and good progress.” Co-Chair Bignell noted the completion of all issues in Contact Group I, with the exception of some brackets that “are likely better addressed in COP 11.” Chair Hosino then encouraged delegates not to “go into details or heavy negotiation” on bracketed text. Before adjourning, Yeon-chul Yoo presented the Republic of Korea’s interest in hosting CBD COP 12. He emphasized the Korean commitment to contribution and balance in: terrestrial and marine conservation; traditional knowledge and modern science; and common ground between developed and developing countries in biodiversity conservation.

A Friends of the Chair group then met to discuss Somalia’s request to compile information on the impact of military conflicts on biodiversity.

In the afternoon, the contact group on financing for biodiversity met to review non-papers on the Strategy for Resource Mobilization and the Financial Mechanism.

In the evening, the plenary reconvened to consider CRPs on the engagement of business, cooperation with other conventions, the message to Rio+20 and south-south cooperation.
