The Convention for Biological Diversity (CBD) decided to again delay the Twenty-fourth Meeting of the Subsidiary Body on Scientific, Technical and Technological Advice (SBSTTA-24) and the Third Meeting of the Subsidiary Body on Implementation (SBI-3). In the Notification, the Secretariat highlighted that it is not safe to convene any large physical intergovernmental meeting this year due to COVID-19. CBD is considering options for virtual discussions on the planned dates in November, but details are yet to be released.
