Online event: 90 minutes for discovering the EU Overseas – BEST innovative & key partners of the EU Biodiversity strategy

Don’t miss out the online event “90 minutes for discovering the EU Overseas: BEST innovative & key partners of the EU Biodiversity strategy“ at 10.30 on 29 September 2020!


The objective is to acknowledge the role of the European overseas as key players in the post-2020 European Biodiversity Framework in order to ensure adequate funding for biodiversity actions in these territories in the years to come.


The BEST Initiative will be presented to stress the importance of small grants to enable and strengthen partners on the ground; and to foster greater mobilisation and ownership. Besides BEST, this will also be the occasion to understand how the EU intends to protect biodiversity beyond the continental Europe and to further discuss the role of ORs and OCTs in the EU Biodiversity Strategy.


This webinar is hosted by MEPs Stéphane Bijoux & Sara Cerdas, Co-Chairs of the ‘Islands and Overseas Entities’ Working Group of the EP Intergroup on ‘Climate Change, Biodiversity and Sustainable Development’ and co-organised by IUCN through the BEST Secretariat.
