Regional Knowledge Sharing Event on Transboundary Biodiversity Landscape Management in the GMS

Nanning, Guangxi, PRC. 24th November 2016

Senior environment and forestry officials from Yunnan and Guangxi met with representatives from the other five GMS countries to exchange experiences and lessons from biodiversity conservation work in transboundary landscapes.

The 1-day event focused on initiatives supported by the GMS Core Environment Program since 2006. Topics included biodiversity conservation corridors, protected area management, community participation, village development funds, climate change vulnerability assessments, and ecosystem-based adaptation.

The final session saw countries work together to draft joint management strategies and action plans for three transboundary biodiversity landscapes. The strategies will guide implementation of recent bilateral Memorandum of Understanding for biodiversity conservation cooperation in the Sino-Viet Nam Karst, Mekong Headwaters, and the Cardamom and Elephant Mountains landscapes.

The event was also attended by 40 biodiversity conservation officials from other provinces of China. It was organized by the Guangxi Environmental Protection Department with CEP support and included a field trip the following day.
