9th GNP HuB Meeting
COP15 debrief and new ideas for 2023!
In this event, we brief the biggest achievement during COP15: the adoption of the Kunming-Montreal Global Biodiversity Framework (GBF), the global strategic plan to tackle the causes of biodiversity loss and guide the international and national efforts on conservation and restoration. A package that includes ABS and DSI.
Moreover, we presented the participation of the HuB project in the following events:
- The CEPA Fair, where we showed the project’s efforts on raising awareness about access and benefit-sharing amongst academic users of genetic resources.
- The ABS Clearing House workshop, where we chaired a working group and brought ideas, from the user’s perspective, on how to improve the ABS-CH in order to show clearer information that facilitates access to genetic resources. Check out the main results here.
About how to distribute the benefits from the use of DSI, the COP decided to establish a multilateral mechanism for benefit-sharing and a participatory process to develop such a mechanism. Lots of work ahead until 2024!
Finally, there was an interactive activity where participants provide ideas on new topics and activities of interest to be performed by the project this year.
