Jakarta, Indonesia

The Third Business and the 2010 Biodiversity Challenge  Conference, in conjunction with the UNEP Business and  Industry Global Dialogue, will be held in Jakarta, Indonesia from 30  November to the 2 December 2009. In accordance with decision IX/26 adopted by  the ninth meeting of the Conference of the Parties, the CBD Business and the  2010 Biodiversity Challenge Conference aims to strengthen business  participation in CBD processes. Following up on the first and second Business  and the Biodiversity Challenge meetings, held in 2005 in London and Brazil  respectively, this third meeting will build upon the previous outcomes and  provide input into the 10th meeting of the Conference of the Parties to be held  in Nagoya, Japan on 19-29 October 2010. The overall objective of the Jakarta  event is to effectively engage the private sector in addressing biodiversity by  stressing the link between biodiversity and core business and by highlighting  best case practices, including life cycle approaches and incentive mechanisms.  By emphasizing existing efforts underway, the event will explore ways to scale-up  business engagement on biodiversity issues and develop recommendations on  collaborative actions that can be undertaken.
