Local action moves the world: Cities as implementation agents

Organizer
ICLEI - Local Governments for Sustainability

Date and Time
18 October 2012 18:15 - 19:45

Meeting
Eleventh meeting of the Conference of the Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity (COP 11)

What are local governments already doing for biodiversity and how can their full potential be unlocked? By drawing from a series of local experiences as well as science-policy developments, this event will explore the local and urban dimensions of nature conservation. It will reflect on progress made in recent years to better engage, recognize, and support local governments as implementation agents of the Convention. It will consider the merits of decentralized cooperation and propose new ways forward.
