At stake at COP15!
In order to continue the CBD’s long and world-leading commitment to precaution and to equip parties to act in a responsible and precautionary manner, decisions must now be made to move ahead critical work on horizon scanning, technology assessment and monitoring of new and emerging technologies - especially modern biotechnologies. If parties fail to green light this next step in the Convention’s work, they risk undoing and undermining over a quarter century of commitments to precaution, opening the door to gambling on risky technologies without the safeguarding tools to assess or govern them.
