Workshop on transformative change in the global post 2020 Biodiversity Framework
June 23, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - June 26, 2020 @ 10:00 pm UTC+1| Free
Transformative change should help achieving the objectives of the Convention on Biological Diversity, the Sustainable Development Goals, the Paris Agreement and other multilateral agreements.
But how can the concept of Transformative Change be translated into concrete actions, goals, targets and pathways for the global post-2020 Biodiversity Framework? Target audience discussing this question with scientists are EU Member State delegates negotiating the framework. Delegates from non-EU countries will also attend.
This Science-Policy dialogue will bring together scientists and policy makers and engage them in a transparent dialogue on how to bring the negotiation process forward on transformative change, taking up work of the Convention on Biological Diversity and the Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES).
The participatory, hands-on webinar will highlight the role of research and innovation as enabler of transformative change. It should also lead to the identification of research and knowledge priorities for the next EU framework programme for research and innovation, Horizon Europe.
Organisers of this workshop are the European Commission and the Croatian Presidency of the Council of the European Union, supported by EKLIPSE, the EU-funded science-policy mechanism on biodiversity and ecosystem services, and Post-2020 Biodiversity Framework. EU Support, an EU-funded project implemented by Expertise France.
By invitation only.
