CEPA Fair 2010

The CEPA Fair on experiences and best practices (Notification: CEPA Fair 2010) was held in parallel to COP-10 from 18-29th October 2010 in Nagoya, Japan.

The CEPA Fair provides a unique opportunity for Parties and organizations to highlight their work and their contribution to the implementation of the three objectives of the Convention. In keeping with the spirit of the global celebrations of the United Nations Decade on Biodiversity the Secretariat is honored to have the occasion to share with the rest of the world the work of these partners whose work in Communication Education and Public Awareness brings us all one step closer to fulfilling the objectives of the Convention.

The activities presented at the fair represent the foundation upon which future work in support of the Strategic Plan for the Convention will be elaborated.

  • Title: Communicating Biodiversity with creativity and enthusiasm: The International Youth Forum Go4BioDiv
    Organized by: Go4BioDiv (CBD, UNESCO, Tsukuba University, IUCN and GTZ)
    Date and Time: Tuesday 26 October 13:15pm - 14:00pm
    Venue: CEPA Fair, First Floor, Building 2 Room 216 A

The International Youth Forum Go4BioDiv, held in parallel to COP10, brings together young people from the most precious natural sites our planet has to offer. The participants come from more than twenty natural World Heritage sites in i.e. Mexico, Peru, Congo, Cameroon, Mauritania, Vietnam, China, India, Australia, Germany and the host country Japan. As representatives of the young generation, they have discussed issues of biodiversity conservation and climate change and will present their joint declaration. Having engaged with the topic in many creative ways like dance and art, they will provide the audience with new ideas on how to communicate biodiversity and also show some of their outstanding contributions like manga comics and video clips.

The importance of effective ABS CEPA has often been stated, inside and outside the core CBD arena. Now that ABS implementation is in sight, it becomes crucial to make multiple stakeholders understand what ABS is all about and how it affects their lives. Clear and well-targeted messages will always be needed to enable non-experts engage meaningfully in ABS debates. But one-way communication alone - like brochures, posters or films - will not be sufficient to arrive at workable ABS agreements at the local and national levels. What's needed are dialogue and negotiation, which in turn require a set of capacities on the side of all involved. The multi-donor "ABS Capacity Development Initiative for Africa" and the CBD Secretariat have jointly been working on ABS CEPA since 2008. They've developed a set of recommendations as well as some very practical approaches and tools, which will be presented and discussed at this Side Event. The feedback from the audience will be used to further develop workable ABS CEPA approaches for all regions of the world.

  • Title: The International Youth Accord on Biodiversity
    Organized by: Biodiversitymatters.org - Second International Youth Symposium for Biodiversity
    Date and Time: Tuesday 26 October at 14:15pm – 15:00pm
    Venue: CEPA Fair, First Floor, Building 2 Room 216 A

The young people will present the Youth Accord on Biodiversity that is now in 25 languages. The youth will also collect signatures from visitors. They will discuss and display images from the First and Second Symposiums on Biodiversity.
