SBSTTA opens with a customary bang


On May 10, the 14th meeting of the Convention on Biological Diversity’s Subsidiary Body on Scientific, Technical and Technological Advice (SBSTTA) opened in Nairobi, Kenya. It will run until May 21 and will aim to address outstanding issues relating to the CBD’s post-2010 Strategic Plan and the Programme of Work on Protected Areas (PoWPA), among others, in the run-up to the CBD Conference of Parties in Nagoya. On the opening day of SBSTTA, the Liberian delegation noted that the implementation of PoWPA must be done in accordance with traditional governance systems and customary use of biodiversity. Kabir Bavikatte (Natural Justice) is in Nairobi for the first week of SBSTTA to present at side events and coordinate with other members of the ICCA Consortium.
