Documentation of 6th EbA Knowledge Day

The 6th EbA Knowledge Day – organized by GIZ and IUCN – convened in June under the theme of “Maximizing the potential of EbA: bridging the gap between climate change and biodiversity agendas.” A welcome by BMU IKI,  high level remarks by ministers, a panel discussion and interactive sessions showcasing practical examples made the event diversified and insightful for the participants.

Held as an online event for the first time, more than 180 participants from 42 countries and 65 organizations used the opportunity to exchange ideas and experiences in a virtual conference space. The day included several interactive features and sessions.

Recordings of the welcome session, remarks by minister and the panel discussion are now online. The documentation is available here

As a follow-up to the event, the BMU-IKI funded Global Project Mainstreaming EbA will host a mini-series of webinars in September and October, continuing the discussion on the potentials of EbA as a bridge between climate change and biodiversity agendas.<
