ISAAA and partners are organizing the 2nd Pre-COPMOP2021: Asian Regional Workshop on Current and Upcoming Items Under the CBD and its Protocols on September 28-29, 2021 via Zoom. Registration is now open to all interested participants.

The Pre-COPMOP sessions will cover the following:

  • rundown of the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) and its protocol and Conference of the Parties serving as the meeting of the Parties to the Protocol (COPMOPs);
  • key developments since the last ISAAA pre-COPMOP event and the latest plans for COP15MOP10; and
  • new breeding technologies and genome editing. 

The two-day virtual workshop aims to prepare participants for COP15MOP10, to be held online in October 2021 (part 1) and in-person in 2022. Registration is open to scientists, regulators, policymakers, industry players, and students. Topics of discussion are carefully chosen as they are the trending items and require serious attention from stakeholders. Resource persons include biologist and lawyer Piet ven der Meer from Ghent University, ISAAA Global Coordinator Mahaletchumy Arujanan, and ISAAA SEAsiaCenter Director Dr. Rhodora Romero-Aldemita. Registration to the workshop is free of charge.
