The Secretariat of the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD), in collaboration with the ABS Capacity Development Initiative, is organising an informal global webinar series to share information related to digital sequence information on genetic resources (DSI).

This webinar series aims to foster a common understanding of DSI and its importance and linkages to the Convention, the Nagoya Protocol, and the Sustainable Development Goals.

This webinar series is open to everyone interested in understanding how DSI is being addressed under the CBD, in preparation for the third meeting of the Open-ended Working Group on the Post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework.
