WGRI 5 & SBSTTA 18The Ad Hoc Open-ended Working Group on Review of Implementation through decision XI/31 of the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) will convene from 16-20 June 2014 in Montreal, Canada. It will be followed by the eighteenth meeting of the CBD Subsidiary Body on Scientific, Technical and Technological Advice (SBSTTA), which will convene from 23-28 June 2014.

The Ad Hoc Open-ended Working Group will address: scientific and technical cooperation and technology transfer (decision XI/2), the strategy for resource mobilization (decision XI/4), the fourth review of the effectiveness of the financial mechanism (decision XI/5), biodiversity for poverty eradication and development (decision XI/22) and improving the efficiency of structures and processes under the Convention (decision XI/10). The Working Group is expected to produce draft recommendations for consideration by the next meeting of the CBD Conference of the Parties (COP) in October 2014, and will address the review of implementation of the Convention, including the items suggested in the multi-year programme of work of the Conference of the Parties for the period 2011-2020.

The eighteenth meeting of the Subsidiary Body on Scientific, Technical and Technological Advice (SBSTTA) established under Article 25 of the Convention will take place in Montreal from 23 to 28 June 2014. SBSTTA 18 is expected to, inter alia: review the mid-term progress report towards the Aichi Biodiversity Targets, including an analysis of how the implementation of the Convention and the Strategic Plan for Biodiversity 2011-2020 has contributed to achieving the 2015 targets of the Millennium Development Goals; prepare its report on the description of ecologically or biologically significant marine areas; consider an assessment of progress in implementing decisions of the COP on invasive alien species, including on efforts to promote coherence in the regulatory framework and a preliminary list of the most common pathways for the introduction of invasive alien species, as well as proposed criteria and a range of tools that may be used to manage or minimize the risks associated with these pathways; consider incentive measures including obstacles encountered in implementing options identified for eliminating, phasing out or reforming incentives that are harmful for biodiversity; and develop recommendations for consideration by the twelfth COP, as to how the Convention, and in particular the Subsidiary Body, should collaborate with the Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services.
