UNCBD COP 10: Advancing the Biodiversity and Climate Adaptation Agenda in the Western Indian Ocean

Date: 20 October 2010
Location: Nagoya, Japan
Host: GLISPA

Held alongside the UNCBD COP 10, this event facilitated discussion amongst countries and institutions in the Western Indian Ocean (islands of the Indian Ocean and coastal areas of East Africa). Participants presented on the environmental and climate change needs and threats of countries in the WIO, and discussed strategies to address these through implementation of CBD commitments in the region. Examples of cutting-edge conservation work that can help address the region's climate threats were shared, and a potential major regional initiative/platform that mobilizes high-level leadership and support was discussed. This event was hosted and coordinated by GLISPA.
