Plenary view during the first day of WGRI 5 of the CBD

The meeting of the fifth ad hoc Open-ended Working Group on Review of Implementation (WGRI 5) of the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) opened today at the headquarters of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) in Montreal, Canada.

In the morning, WGRI 5 Chair, Hem Pande, reminded parties that only 2390 days remain to meet the objectives of the Strategic Plan for Biodiversity 2011-2020, and CBD Executive Secretary Braulio Ferreira de Souza Dias noted the importance of the meeting as a mid-term opportunity for the parties to review the progress made in moving towards the achievement of the Aichi Biodiversity Targets. WGRI 5 delegates considered: review of progress in updating and implementing national biodiversity strategies and action plans; review of progress in providing support in implementing the objectives of the Convention and its Strategic Plan; resource mobilization, including target setting, review of implementation of the strategy for resource mobilization and the Pyeonchang Road Map; and the financial mechanism.

WGRI 5 established a contact group on resource mobilization and financial mechanism, co-chaired by Jeremy Eppel, UK and Francis Ogwal, Uganda.
