The Co-chairs of the Open-ended Working Group on the post-2020 global biodiversity framework and the Secretariat of the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD), in collaboration with the Government of Tajikistan, will convene a thematic consultation on area-based conservation measures to inform the post-2020 global biodiversity framework.
The thematic consultation is intended to facilitate an initial informal dialogue involving experts nominated by Parties and other stakeholders in area-based conservation in order to, inter alia, discuss the current baseline status of area-based conservation measures and develop suggestions on potential goals, targets and indicators, as well as monitoring and reporting ideas, on area-based conservation measures for the post-2020 global biodiversity framework, which will be adopted at the 15th meeting of the Conference of the Parties (COP 15) to the CBD in Kunming, China, in 2020. The outputs of this consultation will be submitted to the second meeting of the Open-ended Working Group for consideration.
