Description of Event:

The 10th Conference of the Parties of the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD COP10) is scheduled for October 2010 in Nagoya, Japan. Preparations are underway not only by the Japanese Government, but also researchers, local governments, and Japanese citizens as the host country to welcome 192 countries to discuss, propose and agree on post-2010 target and framework for the effective implementation of CBD.  The Japan Committee for IUCN is organising an international symposium on post biodiversity 2010 target and the Asia vision, which will kick-start the series of events that will take place in the lead up to COP10. This symposium has invited both international and Japanese speakers and experts to celebrate the one-year before COP10 and to discuss options for the post-2010 target and framework.

Simultaneous English-Japanese interpretation will be provided

This symposium is supported by the Japan Fund for Global Environment of the Environmental Restoration and Conservation Agency and Keidanren Nature Conservation Fund.
