COP 10

The International Indigenous Forum on Biodiversity (IIFB) set out: To enable and ensure full and effective participation of Indigenous Peoples’ representatives at the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) COP10 through the IIFB by providing support for participation in crucial preparatory meetings and activities. The IIFB COP10 Coordinating Committee (IIFB COP10 CC) feels that we were able to achieve our overall objective.

The IIFB COP10CC provided regional coordination and a process for the selection of participants that provided opportunities for the participation of women and youth.  According to the SCBD there were a total of 187 Indigenous and Local Communities (ILCs) registered for COP10 and they were funded through the Voluntary Fund, personal funding, other funders, and the IIFB.

Here are additional information on the work of the IIFB at COP 10-
