The road to COP11
CBD COP11 will be held in Hyderabad, India, from 8 – 19 October 2012. COP 11 will include a high-level
ministerial segment, from 17 – 19 October, organized by the host country in collaboration with the
Secretariat of the Convention.
It will be the first time since 2002 that India is hosting a meeting of a Conference of Parties to a
multilateral environmental agreement. COP11 is highly anticipated since it is the first meeting of the
Parties in the UN Decade for Biodiversity 2011-2020 and the first since the adoption of the Strategic Plan
for Biodiversity 2011-2020 and its twenty Aichi Targets. COP11 thus presents a good opportunity to take
stock of progress made since the Nagoya COP in 2010.
