ICCA Consortium’s flash event at CBD COP 13, Cancun (Mexico)
On the 15th of December 2016, the ICCA Consortium organized a flash event at the 13th meeting of the Conference of the Parties of the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD COP 13) in Cancun (Mexico). The event — entitled: “No to the plunder of our territories! Yes to ICCAs— territories of life!” — offered a glimpse of the concerns that animate many of the defenders of nature, the natural commons and ICCAs. The flash event took place after a technical side event on the conservation impact of extractive industries and just before a press conference on the same subject.
