UN Biodiversity Conference 2024

The 16th meeting of the Conference of the Parties (COP) to the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) will convene in October – November 2024.  The 11th Meeting of the Conference of the Parties serving as the Meeting of the Parties (MOP) to the Cartagena Protocol on Biosafety (CP-MOP-11) and the fifth MOP to the Nagoya Protocol on Access to Genetic Resources and the Fair and Equitable Sharing of the Benefits Arising from their Utilization (NP-MOP-5) will also convene.

Following Türkiye’s withdrawal of its offer to host the meetings because of the toll of February’s destructive earthquakes, Colombia offered to host the meeting. At its meeting on 15 December 2023, the Bureau accepted this offer.
