Join Our Second Webinar: Sustainable Commodity Supply Chains

We are pleased to invite you to our second webinar in the NBSAP Forum series on 14 October 2015, from 7:00 - 8:30 am Eastern Daylight (New York). Register here:

In this webinar, Vinicio Lainares, on behalf of UNDP, will deliver an instructional tutorial on "Sustainable Commodity Supply Chains (SCSC): a tool to support achievement of Aichi Biodiversity Target 4."

The production, trade and consumption of commodities have a negative impact on biodiversity. The CBD Strategic Plan for Biodiversity 2011-2020 and Aichi Biodiversity Target Four state that direct pressures on biodiversity should be reduced and that areas under agriculture, aquaculture and forestry production be managed sustainably. The SCSC approach is a tool for teams to use during the revision and implementation of NBSAPs.

In this course, Vinicio will provide an overview of the SCSC approach, including how to use agriculture commodities, sustainability goals and SCSC to improve biodiversity conservation outcomes. An SCSC implementation framework be presented. It will help participants understand how stakeholders and interventions are used to influence processes. Then, Vinicio will share examples of ongoing SCSC processes and recommendations resulting from several initiatives and stakeholder gatherings. The session will include with a discussion of how SCSC can be incorporated into NBSAPS.
