Second part of the twenty-fourth meeting of the Subsidiary Body on Scientific, Technical and Technological Advice (SBSTTA-24 – Part II)

The second part of SBSTTA-24 to be held in person will follow up on the outcomes of first part held virtually from 3 May to 9 June 2021 (agenda item 3). During the first part, participants considered the draft monitoring framework (CBD/SBSTTA/24/3 and CBD/SBSTTA/24/3/Add.1) for the 2050 goals and the 2030 action targets of the updated zero draft of the post-2020 global biodiversity framework (CBD/POST2020/PREP/2/1). Terms of reference for a technical expert group on indicators for the post-2020 global biodiversity framework were also discussed (CBD/SBSTTA/24/L.3). A contact group was established to work on issues and recommendations related to the monitoring framework. In addition, a survey (CBD/SBSTTA/24/INF/29) was used to collect in-session feedback on the headline indicators and a Friends of the Chair Group was established to discuss technical matters relating to baselines. The discussion resulted in a Co-chairs’ report and annex (see plenary documents) and a draft recommendation (CBD/SBSTTA/24/L.3) which will be considered for formal adoption at the resumed session of SBSTTA-24.

The meeting will be held in 2022 (dates yet to be confirmed).
