COP 10 MOP5

Life in Harmony, into the future

UNESCO will contribute to COP 10 by actively promoting the advancement of the international biodiversity governance agenda; by highlighting specific UNESCO-relevant biodiversity issues through side-events (exploring traditional knowledge; cultural and biological diversity; and the involvement of youth); and by presenting the Japanese version of the UNESCO-led official IYB travelling exhibition.
