During the previous weeks, an informal meeting of the Subsidiary Body on Scientific, Technical and Technological Advice (SBSTTA)* of the Convention on Biological Diversity (CDB) was held.
As the Women Caucus, we participated in all sessions making the voice of women and girls of the world resound strong, demanding our rights and ensuring that no strategy for conservation or regulation of biodiversity is adverse against our life or planet itself.
We invite you to listen to our interventions that were presented in plenary to CBD Parties:
- Agenda Item 3 Post-2020 global biodiversity framework
- Agenda Item 4 Synthetic biology
- Agenda Item 5 Risk assessment and risk management of living modified organisms
- Agenda Item 6 Marine and coastal biodiversity
- Agenda Item 7 Biodiversity and agriculture
Also, we invite you to read the specific contributions we made for each topic on the agenda.
