Biodiversity and Infrastructure: A better nexus?

During the 13th Conference of Parties (COP) to the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) decided that the next COP would ultimately continue the “Mainstreaming of biodiversity into the sectors of energy and mining, infrastructure, manufacturing and processing industry, and health”.

The 21st meeting of the Subsidiary Body on Scientific, Technical and Technological Advice (SBSTTA) will discuss initial draft propositions under Item 6 of the agenda.

In this brief, the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) and the International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD) provide initial policy guidance for parties to consider prior to COP 14 in Egypt on how biodiversity mainstreaming can be reconciled with the infrastructure sector.
