Abstract

Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic
Target countries:

Antigua and Barbuda, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Grenada, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, Trinidad and Tobago

The Caribbean Regional Trialogue on Pollinators, Food Security and Climate Resilience is the second Regional Trialogue to engage multi-stakeholders from the science, policy and practice sectors in dialogue around the Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services’ (IPBES)’s Thematic Assessment Report on Pollinators, Pollination and Food Production. It builds on the experiences and lessons learnt from the Eastern Europe Regional Trialogue on Pollinators, Food Security and Rural Development, which was held in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina, in October 2017.

The Trialogue will place a special focus on the IPBES Member States in the Caribbean region: Antigua and Barbuda, Cuba, the Dominican Republic, Grenada, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, and Trinidad and Tobago. During the event, participants will jointly review the status of pollinators in the region, their importance to sustainable local food production and climate resilience and ways to address the challenges of invasive pests and pathogens, land-use change and pesticide use. The discussions will also focus on the response options on how to address the challenges and maximize the important co-benefits of sustainable management and protection of pollinators and their habitats.

At the same time, the Trialogue will explore ways to integrate the relevant findings from the Summary for Policymakers of the Thematic Assessment Report on Land Degradation and Restoration and the Summary for Policymakers of the Regional Assessment Report on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services for the Americas, which were both launched at the sixth session of the IPBES Plenary in March 2018, into the discussion, given the clear connections between the themes of the reports, especially within the context of the Caribbean.

The Caribbean Regional Trialogue will take place on 4-6 September 2018 in Santo Domingo, the Dominican Republic, a new member of the Coalition of the Willing on Pollinators: ‘Promote Pollinators’, and be hosted by the Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources.
