6-8 February 2017 – Thematic Seminar on Environment: “Implementing the Environmental Dimension of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development”
The Thematic Seminar on Environment – “Implementing the Environmental Dimension of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development”(6-8 February) aims to inform staff in EU Delegations and the European Commission about key environment related issues and recent policy developments, and promote information exchange on related topics, tools and services for EU development cooperation. It will cover environment, biodiversity, wildlife and ecosystems, forests, land and green economy.
The seminar is designed for EU staff (programme officers, focal points, team leaders) in EU delegations and Commission headquarters working on these and related issues; and staff in other sectors to assist them with mainstreaming environment into their work.
9-10 February 2017 – The EU Action Plan against Wildlife Trafficking: One Year Later
Taking place in the latter half of DEVCO’s Week on Environment, “The EU Action Plan against Wildlife Trafficking: One Year Later” seminar, co-organised with DG Environment, will convene key stakeholders involved in implementing EU biodiversity policies outside the EU, with a particular focus on the EU Action Plan against Wildlife Trafficking.
The seminar’s main objectives are to build on first results one year after the adoption of the Action Plan, to discuss topical issues in policy and implementation – such as public-private-partnerships, sustainable financing and the conservation-security nexus – and to promote networking and collaboration between the European Commission, Member States and EU Delegations.
The event is open to 200 participants and is designed for staff in EU delegations and the European Commission (heads of section, programme officers, focal points, team leaders) who work on environment-related matters; leaders of selected EU-funded programmes on wildlife issues and representatives from Member States.
