Sustainable Use of Biodiversity

Discussion Forum for the consultation on sustainable use (07 – 11 September 2020)

The forum aims to allow further discussions as part of the consultation on the sustainable use of biological diversity for the post-2020 global biodiversity framework with a view to provide the Co-Chairs of the Open-Ended Working Group on the Post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework and Parties at the third meeting of the Open-ended Working Group on the Post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework with concrete and constructive inputs on all the different elements of the draft framework that relate to the sustainable use of biodiversity.

Participants will be invited to consider a number of guiding questions under the Threads of the Forum. The Thread topics were based on some of the preliminary results of the online survey and have been prepared under the supervision of the co-leads of the consultation and in close collaboration with the Co-Chairs of the Open-ended Working Group on the Post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework.
