What is the ambition for biodiversity COP15 in South Asia and Southeast Asia?

South and Southeast Asian countries are very rich in biodiversity and face many challenges, particularly in terms of conservation of tropical forests.

While the Covid-19 crisis has slowed down international discussions to prepare for biodiversity COP15, which will now be held in 2021 in China, and also questions global supply chains that play a key role for a number of export economies in the region, it is now essential to pursue opportunities for dialogue with the countries of the region, in particular to better identify their ambition and expectations of COP15.

This webinar (in English and French with translation) will bring together representatives and / or experts from the region.

Moderation by Aleksandar Rankovic, Coordinator of the Post-2020 International Biodiversity Governance initiative, IDDRI.

  • Dr. Vinod B. Mathur, Chairperson, National Biodiversity Authority (India)
  • Dr. Suneetha Mazhenchery Subramanian, Senior Research Fellow, UNU-IAS
  • Dr. Theresa Mundita Lim, Executive Director, ASEAN Centre for Biodiversity
  • Basile van Havre – Co-chair of the CBD Open-Ended Working Group (OEWG) of the CBD.
