Rebeca Grynspan, UNDP Associate Administrator addressed the eleventh Conference of the Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity in Hyderabad from 8-19 October. From stalls at the exhibition centre showcasing the work of local communities to the community palli, a dedicated space for dialogue and exchange between communities from around the world, to the release of key knowledge products and support to a range of sessions at CoP 11, UNDP India’s presence at the conference helped the organization highlight three key themes- biodiversity and livelihoods; biodiversity and governance; and ecosystem-based approaches for resilience.
