Third Business and the 2010 Biodiversity Challenge Conference (30 November - 2 December 2009, Jakarta)

The overall objective of the Third Business and the 2010 Biodiversity Challenge Conference in Jakarta is to effectively engage the private sector in addressing biodiversity by stressing the link between biodiversity and core business and by highlighting best case practices, including life cycle approaches and incentive mechanisms. By emphasizing existing efforts underway, the event will explore ways to scale-up business engagement on biodiversity issues and develop recommendations on collaborative actions that can be undertaken.

Specific objectives include:

* To provide stakeholders a discussion platform for raising awareness, collecting feedback and supporting ongoing initiatives, to better engage the private sector in biodiversity related efforts.

* To provide CBD with private sector focused inputs to inform the COP 10.

* To provide UNEP DTIE with private sector focused inputs on biodiversity to feed into the GMEF.
