Thematic meeting

The purpose of the thematic meetings is to develop policy proposals for sustainable communities through the sharing of effective practices and solutions for common problems.

In many communities, various stakeholders have already been involved in biocultural diversity conservation and utilization. This has led to a discovery in new attractions and value in biocultural diversity resources at the same time gains in external capital, thus creating a positive cycle. However, issues such as the aging population and a lack of human resources to manage biocultural resources in local regions should be addressed.

The thematic meetings can be divided into the following three main themes:

  • Policy Coordination for the Promotion of the Links between Biological and Cultural Diversity
  • Sustainable and Equitable Use of Biocultural Resources and Capacity Building for Biocultural Approaches
  • Biocultural Approaches to Meet Sustainable Development Challenges in Internationally Designated Sites
