The eighteenth meeting of the CBD Subsidiary Body on Scientific, Technical and Technological Advice (SBSTTA 18) opened on Monday, 23 June 2014, in Montreal, Canada. Delegates met in plenary throughout the day to: review the draft of the fourth edition of the Global Biodiversity Outlook (GBO-4); review the implementation of the Global Strategy for Plant Conservation (GSPC) 2011-2020; consider recommendations on the Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform for Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES); and review incentive measures, including obstacles encountered in implementing options identified for eliminating, phasing out or reforming incentives that are harmful for biodiversity.

A contact group, chaired by Brigitte Baptiste (Colombia), on the GBO-4 and the Pyeongchang Road Map was established, and will meet on Tuesday evening.

In the evening, delegates attended a reception hosted by the CBD Secretariat.
