Invitation to COP 12 Side Event: Incorporating and Utilising Spatial Data and Mapping for NBSAPs

Date: Wednesday 8th October 2014

Time: 13:15-14:45

Venue: Hall B, Room 2—ILCs Meeting Room

Spatial data and mapping is essential for effective and successful NBSAP revision and implementation. At this side event, we aim to introduce the subject and to explore the barriers to incorporating spatially explicit data, and specific country needs in order to do so.

Presentations will be delivered by UNEP-WCMC and experts in the field of spatial data use and mapping, alongside country and regional representatives with experience of applying spatial data and mapping into revised NBSAPs. These presentations, coupled with Q&A and facilitated discussion sessions will aim to highlight the important role that spatial data and mapping can play in the NBSAP process, and outline how they can be incorporated into ongoing NBSAP revisions in order to achieve improved outcomes for effective biodiversity monitoring, management and conservation.
