Chair Moustafa Mokhtar Ali Fouda, Egypt, addressing delegates in plenary

On Wednesday morning, delegates reconvened in plenary to consider invasive alien species (IAS), including: management of risks associated with introduction of alien species introduced as pets, aquarium and terrarium species, and as live bait and live food; and review of work on IAS and considerations for future work.

In the afternoon, delegates resumed consideration of synthetic biology, and afterwards discussed issues in progress, including: integration of the conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity into climate change mitigation and adaptation activities; promoting the contribution of REDD+ activities towards achieving the objectives of the Convention; climate-related geo-engineering; and ecosystem conservation and restoration.

Two contact groups met in the evening. A contact group on synthetic biology was chaired by Andrew Bignell (New Zealand), and the other on marine and coastal biodiversity was chaired by Renée Sauvé (Canada).
