Last year culminated with the Cities and Subnational Government Biodiversity Summit 2014, held in Pyeongchang, Korea, in parallel to the CBD COP 12. The passion exhibited, and the incredible work showcased by local and subnational governments from around the world, at the Biodiversity Summit was certainly inspirational! The Gangwon/Pyeongchang Resolution for Cities and Subnational Governments on Biodiversity was a very strong outcome of the Summit, and we hope to build on this in 2015, strengthening the global biodiversity agenda through support for local/subnational implementation.
Please find the final report for the Biodiversity Summit 2014 attached.
We wish you a wonderful and biodiverse New Year – all the best for 2015 – and we look forward to continuing our work with you into the future.
Warm regards from the ICLEI Cities Biodiversity Center
