    At the 13th Conference of the Parties (COP13) to the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD), held in December 2016 in Cancun/Mexico, the Parties called for the mainstreaming of biodiversity across all agricultural sectors and adopted the Cancun Declaration on Mainstreaming the Conservation and Sustainable Use of Biodiversity for Well-Being1. Concurrently, in late 2016, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) offered to act as the Biodiversity Mainstreaming Platform2 (the Platform), aiming at facilitating the dialogue and the exchange of information between governments and other stakeholders in regards to the sustainable use, management and restoration of biodiversity across agricultural sectors (including crop and livestock production, forestry, fisheries and aquaculture). As the first major activity of acting as the Biodiversity Mainstreaming Platform, FAO organized in Rome, Italy, the Multi-Stakeholder Dialogue in Biodiversity Mainstreaming across Agricultural Sectors (the Dialogue), between the 29th and the 31st of May 2018. The event was co-organized with the CBD Secretariat and brought together roughly 250 experts and representatives from diverse stakeholder groups. As a follow-up, FAO with the support of the Government of Rwanda and in collaboration with the African Union Commission and other partners including the CBD Secretariat, the African Union Development Agency (AUDA-NEPAD) and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) Regional Office for Africa is proposing to organize an African Regional Dialogue on Biodiversity Mainstreaming across Agricultural Sectors (the Regional Dialogue), which will take place from the 4 to the 5 November 2019 in Kigali, Rwanda.
