9:00 am - 10:00 am UTC
Please join Internews’ Earth Journalism Network this Wednesday, October 21 at 9am EDT (2pm in London, 8pm in Jakarta) for a webinar that will explore the outlook for biodiversity at both a global and local level and what it means for proposals to protect the planet.
We’ll look at the UN Convention on Biological Diversity’s (CBD) latest biodiversity assessment and discuss the transformations needed to protect and secure the benefits this biodiversity provides us.
We’ll also hear how indigenous peoples and local communities are working to support the CBD’s goals, and we’ll discuss what all this means for the new global targets governments are set to agree to next year when they meet in China.
