CBD COP15 event- OECMs and green economies: Productive landscapes for nature-positive society
08 December 2022
17:00 - 18:00 hrs. Palais des Congres de Montreal Convention and Exhibition Center
Montreal
, Canada

What is the issue?: 
This side event will focus on the emerging issue of “other effective area-based conservation measures” (OECMs), which are expected to be an increasingly important part of biodiversity policy during and beyond the timeframe of the post-2020 global biodiversity framework of the Convention of Biological Diversity (CBD). OECMs are a particularly powerful tool for expanding effective area-based conservation beyond strictly designated protected areas and ensuring that a much broader area is covered by biodiversity-friendly spatial planning. Humans and their production activities are expected to play a larger role in OECMs, and it is therefore important to promote nature-positive and human-positive approaches to achieve CBD’s goals of “living in harmony with nature”.

How will this event address the issue? 
This session will focus on processes related to OECMs under the global biodiversity framework, in particular the ongoing issue of how productive landscapes and seascapes, where human communities exist and use the local biodiversity for their livelihoods, will be dealt with in OECM policy. The event is an ongoing discussion the joint project by Conservation International (CI) and United Nations University Institute for the Advanced Study of Sustainability (UNU-IAS) project on OECMs and “Socio-ecological production landscapes and seascapes” (SEPLS) that has progressed in earlier CBD meetings. This time the discussions will focus on how financial, trade, and economic factors that may affect the identification, management, and effectiveness of OECMs that include human productive areas

What will take place? 
This in-person event will take place along the sidelines a side-event of the Fifteenth meeting of the Conference of the Parties of the CBD (CBD COP15), taking place in Montreal, Canada from 7 to 19 December 2020.  The session will l bring together experts from a variety of stakeholders to present the latest knowledge in a panel discussion format. It will be followed by a discussion among participants.
