On Thursday morning, delegates resumed plenary discussions on: issues in progress, including integration of the conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity into climate change mitigation and adaptation activities; application of relevant safeguards for biodiversity with regard to policy approaches and positive incentives on issues relating to REDD+; climate-related geo-engineering; ecosystem conservation and restoration; definitions of key terms on biofuels; and sustainable use of biodiversity.

Three contact groups met in the afternoon on synthetic biology, marine and coastal biodiversity, and IAS. In the evening, SBSTTA reconvened in plenary to consider issues on health and biodiversity, and recommendations to COP 12 on: GBO-4 progress in achieving the targets of the GSPC; obstacles encountered in implementing options identified for eliminating, phasing out, or reforming incentives; and IPBES.
