Biodiversity E-Conference

2010 is the International Year of Bio-diversity.  In order to gather opinion from broad and diverse groups of stakeholders on “how” and “what” actions should be taken in the short and medium term after 2010, the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) has launched an E-conference as a ‘mega’ consultation process.  Here’s their blurb on what it is and why its important:

“The ANIEC 2010 represents a “mega” consultation process that utilizes internet communication technology to seek views and provide a framework for an electronic debate of the civil society prior to a meeting of a Conference of the Parties of the Convention on Biological Diversity. Through the CBD Clearing House, it will involve government and non-government organizations, indigenous and local communities, women, youth, scientific and expert networks, academia, business networks, local communities, and other interested segments and groups in an open dialogue. The outputs of the resulting discussion will be summarized and presented to the high level segment of the UN General Assembly in New York in September. As well, a side event will be organized during COP 10 by the president to present the results of the e-conference for the delegates.”
