Trust in teamwork of bees linking two bee swarm partsThe OECD maintains an active programme of biodiversity-related events:

  • Participation in international conferences and workshops dedicated to biodiversity issues – where recent OECD work is shared and further discussed with government officials and biodiversity experts from all over the world.
  • Side-events and presentations in key international events, such as the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) Conference of the Parties (COP) – where policy messages from recent and on-going work are showcased.
  • The OECD convenes international workshops and expert meetings to help implement the OECD programme on biodiversity and ecosystems by bringing relevant stakeholders together from e.g. the private sector, academia, and other practitioners and experts to exchange information on a particular on-going OECD project.

Upcoming and recent events are listed below. More information about participation possibilities and outcomes can be obtained through the links provided. In addition, OECD experts are often called to make biodiversity-related presentations in international events, and to provide expert input to global or regional processes.
