Call for Proposals of Side Events at CBFP MOP 19

The Facilitation of the Federal Republic of Germany is pleased to launch a call for proposals for side events during the 19th Meeting of Parties (MoP 19) in Libreville, Gabon, from 5-8 July 2022, tbc.

 

Side events are open and communicative spaces. In line with the themes of the CBFP MOP 19, the side events will form a hub for joint programming, creating synergies, and sharing experiences, results and perspectives among CBFP partners. Side events will serve as the principal platform for launching initiatives, programs and projects. They will provide a space for exchanging ideas and networking with the diverse range of MoP 19 participants from the policy, scientific and practitioner communities, including the eleven COMIFAC member states, Side events are designed to showcase the political, diplomatic, practical, scientific and innovation experience of the partnership and its members.

 

This portrayal of the CBFP on the occasion of its 20th anniversary as showcased by the side events reflects the international community’s growing recognition of the Congo Basin forets’ importance for global biodiversity and environmental health, its considerable role in the fight against climate change and the contribution of its peatlands, which are not only a major global reserve of soil carbon but also a significant world reserve of endemic biodiversity and mineral resources.

 

The side events should highlight the linkages between topics such as the fight against climate change, biodiversity conservation, transhumance, sustainable management, forest restoration and sustainable development in the central African sub-region. In the context of the development priorities of the Congo Basin, they should provide frames to the discussions and outcomes of the MoP 19 main program. In this manner, side events should take into consideration the necessities and steps to implementing the COMIFAC Declaration and the proposed "Fair Deal" for the Congo Basin forests between the international community and Congo Basin countries as stated in the Declaration of Commitment of the COMIFAC Member States to the Central African forests and call for equitable financing and the COP26 Congo Basin Joint Donor Statement, respectively.
