Open Discussion on CBD COP 11

11th September 2012
This meeting of various civil society groups - either active or preparing to be so, in different areas of people’s concerns about biological diversity and livelihoods, was called upon to discuss the overarching concerns of not only loss of biodiversity but also of increased, state assisted systematic transfer of control over biodiversity, food productions systems and natural resources from communities to private entities in the name of regulation, conservation and promotion. India as a host of the eleventh COP of Convention on Biological diversity should not only showcase its efforts in organizing CBD COP but also addressing these critical concerns. The discussion aimed to connect with organizations and networks participating in COP and to explore what synergies and convergence can be created not only in terms of participation at CBD COP but also as a long term and sustained engagement with the issue, institutions and state.
