The Expert Group on Biodiversity for Poverty Eradication and Development will meet from 12 - 14 December 2011, in Dehradun, India. The aim of the Expert Group will be to elucidate the linkages between the three objectives of the Convention, and poverty eradication and development processes, with the aim of improving capacity for mainstreaming the objectives into poverty eradication strategies and plans. The Group also will aim to identify the most effective approach toward a framework on capacity development for mainstreaming biodiversity and ecosystem services for sustainable development and poverty eradication, building on existing initiatives and in close cooperation with relevant organizations. The report of the Group will provide technical input to the Working Group on Review of Implementation of the Convention.
