From 9-13 July 2018, the 2nd meeting of the Subsidiary Body on Implementation (SBI-2) will take place in Montreal, Canada. The SBI was established by the Conference of the Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD), with the first meeting held in May 2016, to review implementation progress and strategic actions to enhance implementation; as well as strengthen means of implementation and operations of the convention and the Protocols.
During this meeting, UNDP, in collaboration with Conservation International (CI) and the Secretariat of the International Partnership for the Satoyama Initiative (IPSI) established within the United Nations University Institute for the Advanced Study of Sustainability (UNU-IAS), will host a side event on Tuesday, July 10th. This event with the title “Financing Landscape Management Approaches: Replication and Upscaling for Biodiversity and Sustainable Development” aims to share knowledge and experiences from successful on-the-ground actions for replication and upscaling of community-based landscape planning and management approaches and practices through sustainable finance. Speakers from the GEF, UNDP, GEF SGP, CI, and IPSI will share lessons and best practices from the COMDEKS Programme, the GEF SGP Upgraded Country Programmes, the GEF-Satoyama Initiative Project, and partnership activities.
Title: Financing Landscape Management Approaches: Replication and Upscaling for Biodiversity and Sustainable Development
When: Tuesday, 10 July 2018 (time TBA)
This side event will also be an opportunity to officially launch COMDEKS’ new publication “Assessing Landscape Resilience: Best Practices and Lessons Learned from the COMDEKS Programme.” The aim of this publication is to summarize the key lessons learned and illustrate the best practices drawn from the practical applications of the Resilience Indicators and other allied tools for community consultation during more than five years of field experience in the COMDEKS Programme. This report is the conclusion of a desk review and a stock taking exercise of all documents—qualitative and quantitative—produced by country programmes about their indicator-related experiences. It intends to contribute to the growing body of evidence-based literature describing the practice of participatory monitoring using indicators and related tools, and documenting its importance in community consultation, education, and mobilization.
