‘’Great side-event organised by the CBD Secretariat to celebrate a very substantial and ambitious Programme of Work on Protected Areas (PoWPA). We Europeans plan to use that PoWPA as an inspiring guidance to propose a partnership of IUCN and the many different governmental organisations with Conventions and other obligations in Protected Areas and Ecological Networks for some common work for the next years.

Many thanks for all of the guidance and help with my last query! I'm also wondering if anyone will be attending:

SABAH'S, MALAYSIA CONSERVATION GOVERNANCE - ECOSYSTEM APPROACH IN PRACTICE (Today) Dr. Abdul Fatah (Head of Delegation from Sabah) with the Sabah Biodiversity Centre will be distributing a flyer of the Roadmap to the gazettement of Tun Mustapha Park. I am curious to hear reactions/comments.


The driftwood table-set to be featured at the COP tells the story of four places of particular high biodiversity from around the world - I'm especially interested in the Kudat area.

Any guidance or information you might be able to share would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks/ri buan terima kasih again! Hope everyone is well.

Hi everyone. I will be in Nagoya from Friday onwards. My organisation (International Institute for Environment and Development) has a stand in the exhibition space (Booth 52). You can pick up lots of free publications on biodiversity there. All the best, Mike
