November 30, 2009 - December 02, 2009
The Third Business and the 2010 Biodiversity Challenge Conference, in conjunction with the UNEP Business and Industry Global Dialogue, will be held in Jakarta, Indonesia from 30 November to the 2 December 2009. In accordance with decision IX/26 adopted by the ninth meeting of the Conference of the Parties, the CBD Business and the 2010 Biodiversity Challenge Conference aims to strengthen business participation in CBD processes. Following up on the first and second Business and the Biodiversity Challenge meetings, held in 2005 in London and Brazil respectively, this third meeting will build upon the previous outcomes and provide input into the 10th meeting of the Conference of the Parties to be held in Nagoya, Japan on 19-29 October 2010. The overall objective of the Jakarta event is to effectively engage the private sector in addressing biodiversity by stressing the link between biodiversity and core business and by highlighting best case practices, including life cycle approaches and incentive mechanisms. By emphasizing existing efforts underway, the event will explore ways to scale-up business engagement on biodiversity issues and develop recommendations on collaborative actions that can be undertaken.
