CBD Alliance believes all targets should be implemented in ways that assure a fair, just, equitable, and gender-just implementation. This side event will assess where we see the danger that greenwashing techniques and false solutions could undermine the positive outcomes of the GBF. Finally, the side event will provide insights on ways to include equity and fairness in the indicators, which are critical measures for implementation.
1) False solutions
a) Carbon offsets and NBS: Souparna Lahiri, Global Forest Coalition(GFC)
b) Biodiversity offsets and credits: T19- Mirna Fernández, Third World Network (TWN)
c) Private sector’s voluntary approaches: Agricultural intensification, certification, TNFD – T10, T15, T16 – Nele Marien, Friends of the Earth International (FOEI)
2) Ecological integrity:
