Delegates in the plenary on the second day of CBD WGRI 5

WGRI 5 resumed its discussions on Tuesday with an informal dialogue session in the morning, during which two panels discussed ways of: mainstreaming biodiversity in the sustainable development goals; and mobilizing resources for achieving the Aichi Biodiversity Targets. Panelists addressed questions on: the adequacy of the zero draft in addressing biodiversity and ecosystems; the role of the Secretariat, CBD parties, and the CBD community in mainstreaming biodiversity and ecosystems in the post-2015 development agenda; integration of the NBSAPs at the national level with development, disaster prevention and other relevant planning processes; examples of biodiversity-related activities that were successfully prioritized in national budgeting processes; the human and financial capacity required to mobilize resources to achieve the Aichi Biodiversity Targets; and identification of the positive impacts of biodiversity and ecosystem services on national income.

In the afternoon, delegates provided statements on: the potential of biodiversity for poverty eradication and sustainable development; and improving the efficiency of structures and processes under the Convention.

In the evening, a contact group met under the guidance of Jeremy Eppel, UK, and Francis Ogwal, Uganda, to discuss resource mobilization and the financial mechanism. A Friends of the Chair group on biodiversity for poverty eradication and sustainable development was also established with Maria Schultz, Sweden, as chair.
