    Biodiversity is critical for safeguarding global food security, underpinning healthy and nutritious diets, improving rural livelihoods, and enhancing the resilience of people and communities. The recent alarming findings on the threats of biodiversity loss and ecosystem degradation from the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nation (FAO)’s The State of the World’s Biodiversity for Food and Agriculture and the global assessment report of the Intergovernmental Science-Policy on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services have put agricultural sectors at the center of the debate in sustaining the future of human well-being and livability of the planet. Against this background, the FAO Conference, in 2017, welcomed FAO’s initiative to act as Biodiversity Mainstreaming Platform1 (the Platform) and requested FAO to facilitate, in collaboration with its partners, such as the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) and other UN organizations, the integration in a structured and coherent manner of actions for the conservation, sustainable use, management and restoration of biological diversity across agricultural sectors at national, regional and international levels. FAO, working with the Secretariat of the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) co-organized the first global multistakeholder dialogue on biodiversity mainstreaming in Rome (May 2018) and four regional dialogues for Latin America and the Caribbean (Mexico, October 2018), Asia and the Pacific (Thailand, July 2019), the Near East (Jordan, November 2019), and Africa (Rwanda, November 2019).

    The Regional Consultative Meeting on Biodiversity Mainstreaming across Agricultural Sectors in Asia and the Pacific was held last 17 to 18 July 2019 in Bangkok, Thailand. The Meeting was co-organized by FAO and the UN CBD Secretariat, in collaboration with the Office of Natural Resources and Environment Policy and Planning (ONEP) and the Biodiversity-Based Economy Development Office (BEDO) of the Kingdom of Thailand. The main objective of the Regional Consultative Meeting was to engage a broad range of stakeholders to share local, national, and regional experiences and lessons learned (including gaps and challenges) on mainstreaming biodiversity across agricultural sectors. In addition, it aimed at identifying concrete areas for joint actions, at the regional and country levels, in view of the preparations for the UN CBD Post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework and for the FAO Strategy on Mainstreaming Biodiversity across Agricultural Sectors (the Strategy).
