As you are aware, the Conference of the Parties to the Convention, at its tenth meeting in Nagoya, Japan, in October 2010, is due to adopt a revised and updated Strategic Plan for the CBD, including post-2010 biodiversity target(s), on the basis of a recommendation by the third meeting of the Ad hoc Open-ended Working Group on the Review of Implementation of the Convention (WGRI-3) and inputs from the fourteenth meeting of the Subsidiary Body on Scientific, Technical and Technological Advice (SBSTTA-14), both to be held in Nairobi in May 2010. As set out in decision IX/9, Parties and observers are invited to submit their views on the process. The aforementioned document (UNEP/CBD/SP/PREP/2) is intended to stimulate further discussions and inputs from Parties and all stakeholders. In addition, a number of consultations are being organized. Full information is provided at the above-mentioned webpage.
Submissions should reach firstname.lastname@example.org no later than 11 January 2010, so that they can be taken into account in the preparation of relevant documentation for WGRI-3 and SBSTTA-14.
