The Convention on Biological Diversity calls for Parties to “integrate, as far as possible and as appropriate, the conservation and sustainable use of biological diversity into relevant sectoral or cross-sectoral plans, programmes and policies” (Article 6(b)). “Mainstreaming” is embedded in the Strategic Plan for Biodiversity 2011-2020. In particular, Goal A is about mainstreaming across government and society while B is largely about mainstreaming in sectors such as agriculture, forestry and fisheries.
The workshop helped to prepare for the HLS and associated events of the thirteenth meeting of the Conference of the Parties. The workshop provided an opportunity for informal discussion among participants, complementing the more formal meetings.
