Democratic Republic of the Congo:

March 2024 – Workshop to validate the study of existing science-policy-practice initiatives and mechanisms, and revitalization of the Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services platform of the Democratic Republic of Congo (BioSE-RDC).

On March 5 and 6, 2024, in Kinshasa, the Democratic Republic of Congo’s General Secretariat for the Environment and Sustainable Development hosted a national workshop to validate the report analysing the landscape of existing platforms in the country, as well as to revitalise its national biodiversity platform, BioSE-RDC. Organised with the support of the CABES project and the assistance of the NGO Juristes pour l’Environnement au Congo (JUREC), the event brought together representatives of national and provincial institutions, including universities and research centers, sectoral public administrations, civil society organizations involved in conservation issues, and technical and financial partners.

During the two days of presentations and discussions, several sessions were organised, including the presentation and validation of the national platform landscape analysis report and its main conclusions, as well as a summary of the main conclusions of the tenth IPBES plenary. In addition, BioSE-RDC was presented, highlighting activities already completed by the platform, such as the assessment of biodiversity and ecosystem services in the Lomami National Park. Finally, a roadmap was drawn up to define the responsibilities of each BioSE-RDC stakeholder for the year 2024.
