CO-OP4CBD will organise a training session for the Clearing House Mechanism (CHM) National Focal Point experts. The project partners French National History Museum (Muséum National d'Histoire Naturelle) and Royal Belgian Institute of Natural Science will guide the training. The event will take place in Brussels, Belgium between 8 - 10 November 2023 with expected attendance of 30 European CHM National Focal Points.
The goal of the training is to provide a clear overview of the Convention on Biological Diversity operations, consultation and decision-making processes, so that experts can participate confidently in CBD events. A particular attention will be paid to the Technical and Scientific cooperation mechanisms where the scientific content is woven into the finer details of the decisions .
