CBD Dialogue Seminar on Scaling up Finance for Biodiversity

Co-hosted by the Governments of Ecuador, Sweden, Norway and India, the intention of this dialogue seminar is to facilitate the further elaboration by the Conference of the Parties (COP) to the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) of the Strategy for Resource Mobilization, and thereby facilitate implementation of the Strategic Plan and achievement of the Aichi Biodiversity Targets. More specifically, the dialogue seminar will: explore opportunities related to an increase in the scale of finance; contribute to building understanding on these issues; and seek to clarify areas of convergence and of divergence. It will include keynote presentations, case studies and small group discussions.
