“Living in harmony with Nature” – second day of the Thematic Consultation on Ecosystem Restoration discusses how to achieve the 2050 Vision
In the second day of the Thematic Consultation on Ecosystem Restoration for the post 2020 Global Biodiversity framework, Basile van Havre, co-chair of the 2020 work group opened the Session 5: Achieving the 2050 Vision, and relevant 2030 milestones
Next, participants were divided into three groups to discuss possible 2050 vision and 2030 and other milestones required in order to reach the 2050 Vision. The results were presented to the audience by one country representative for each group, based on notes from the note-takers.
Opening the next session, Session 6: Potential substantive elements on ecosystem restoration for the post 2020 global biodiversity framework, Carlos Alberto Scaramuzza and Renato Crouzeilles, from IIS, Introduced to the methodology for the world café, that consists of dividing the in groups that will pass through each of the different four work station to discuss specific potential elements, based on Aichi Targets 5, 14 and 15, and linked to CBD decisions on ecosystem restoration as well as the existing targets in other international agreements and processes
The activity took place during all afternoon, with the participants passing through the following work stations:
Station 1 – Principles to guide the goals and targets (facilitator: Robin Chazdon, IIS)
Scope and guiding principles of the goal and targets on ecosystem restoration (qualitative elements)
Station 2 – Global goals and targets (facilitator: Renato Crouzeilles, IIS)
Scope and guiding metrics, baselines and indicators of the goal and targets on ecosystem restoration (quantitative elements)
Station 3 – Linkages to other potential thematic areas (facilitator: Bethanie Walder, SER)
Relation of goal and targets on ecosystem restoration to other potential goals and targets under the post-2020 biodiversity framework
Station 4 – Integrating existing goals/targets from other international instruments areas (facilitator: Carlos A. M. Scaramuzza, IIS)
Integrating the goal and targets on ecosystem restoration with other international instruments and conventions (strengthening the potential for ecosystem restoration)
