Happening during the Twenty-sixth meeting of the Subsidiary Body on Scientific, Technical and Technological Advice (SBSTTA-26), this event aims to provide insights into freshwater biodiversity conservation and restoration, with a specific focus on localised initiatives on the ground, and links to global monitoring. Throughout the event, experiences in freshwater ecosystem restoration at the national and sub-national levels will be shared. Furthermore, the event will explore the interconnections between SDG-6 monitoring and the Global Biodiversity Framework. These presentations and the following discussions are intended to offer valuable lessons for biodiversity conservation and restoration, both from current on-the-ground efforts and the exploration of synergies between existing freshwater data and information systems. 

More information and a draft agenda can be found here.
