“Biodiversity for Poverty Reduction Day" at CBD COP9

24 May 2008, Bonn, Germany

The IIED-facilitated Poverty and Conservation Learning Group (PCLG), together with the CBD Secretariat and the German Federal Agency for Nature Conservation (BfN), hosted a succesful one day meeting during CBD COP9 to highlight emerging experience in linking biodiversity conservation and poverty reduction in policy and in practice. With a focus on lessons learned in linking conservation and poverty reduction, presentations included the G8-commissioned study on the Economics of Biodiversity Loss; the follow up to the Millennium Ecosystem Assessment; experience from the CBD Secretariat in mainstreaming NBSAPs and PRSPs, as well as a diverse array of other policy and practical initiatives. The meeting provided an ideal networking opportunity for policy makers and practitioners to meet and learn from each other and to get up to speed with initiatives from the local to the international level.
