Dear Friends and Colleagues

Bringing horizon scanning, technology assessment and monitoring into the future work of the CBD

A new briefing from ETC Group and Friends of the Earth calls on delegates to the upcoming UN biodiversity meetings in Montreal (3-19 December, 2022) to continue the CBD’s long and world-leading commitment to precaution.

In order to equip Parties to act in a responsible and precautionary manner, decisions are needed to move ahead critical work on horizon scanning, technology assessment and monitoring of new and emerging technologies – especially modern biotechnologies. The briefing includes specific text recommendations to help delegates integrate these concerns into the CBD outcomes on the post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework and the agenda item on Synthetic Biology.

The briefing is available in English and Spanish.

With best wishes,
