In keeping with the National Inuit Strategy on Research (NISR) and the Inuit Nunangat Policy (NIP), self-determination in being achieved through communities leading role in the research in the Arctic and is a valuable contribution to conservation and protection on Canada's biodiversity.
17:00–18:00 Inclusive Wealth as a Measure of Sustainability and Equity International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD); International Development Research Center (IDRC); UNEP Natural capital, and biodiversity contributes significantly to a country’s wealth. However, these contributions of biodiversity and natural capital to economies — and to our well-being — are largely overlooked by dominant economic measures such as GDP. As Cambridge Professor Sir Partha Dasgupta put it in a review of The Economics of Biodiversity for the UK Treasury, GDP may be “indispensable in short-run macroeconomic analysis and management [but] it is wholly unsuitable for…identifying sustainable development”. So what alternative frameworks could complement GDP to allow policymakers and citizens to understand if their development pathways are sustainable? This collaborative event between IISD, IDRC, and UNEP is to assist developing countries in estimating the value of natural capital and biodiversity, exploring data challenges and policy implications. This work is based on IISD’s estimation of Canadian wealth in 2016 and 2018.
18:30–20:00 Governance and Conservation in Eeyou Istchee, Quebec, Canada Cree Nation Government “Eeyou Istchee” is the traditional territory and homeland of the Cree of northern Quebec.

14:00-15:30 Kitaskinaw Pimatsowin - Our Land is Our Life: Panel discussion on Métis leadership in Protecting Nature Métis National Council;
Les Femmes Michif Otipemisiwak
Join us for a panel discussion co-hosted by Les Femmes Michif Otipemisiwak and the Métis National Council. During the Kitaskinaw Pimatsowin panel discussion on Métis leadership in protecting nature, you'll hear stories from across the historic Métis Homeland on how communities are caring for lands and waters. Métis communities have a long history of stewarding lands and waters and caring for all elements of nature, as the wellbeing of the natural environment is closely tied to the wellbeing of the Métis Nation. This event will share Métis Women and Youth perspectives and knowledge and experiences reading the land, in a showcase of conservation and climate actions led by Métis National Council Governing Members and Les Femmes Michif Otipemisiwak. The twin crises of biodiversity loss and climate change are threatening the very systems that the Métis way of life depends on. Action to recover nature and address climate change therefore must include a place for Métis leadership and knowledge systems.
17:00-18:00 Nurturing Nature: Financing Nature-Based Solutions for Climate, Biodiversity and Communities Climate Investment Funds This event convenes government, Indigenous and civil society leaders in support of nature-based solutions, and showcases the Climate Investment Funds’ (CIF) new Nature, People, and Climate (NPC) Program. Gender equality and social inclusion are at the center of the CIF’s mission. The CIF NPC Program includes a Dedicated Grant Mechanism (DGM) that provides direct financing to Indigenous People and local communities (IPLCs) and includes measures to prioritize women and youth. In addition, the NPC Program seeks to narrow the widening nature finance gap. According to the United Nations, annual nature investments from G20 nations alone need to increase by an additional $165 billion per year – an increase of 140% from existing levels – to realize biodiversity, land restoration and climate targets by 2050. Nature investments are urgently needed and have the potential to benefit climate, the economy, and people.

This project includes 2 nation-wide travelling exhibits, Our Climate Quest, which introduce visitors to the concept of climate action and our current understanding of climate change through observations, historical data and Indigenous knowledge. The 6000 sqft exhibit is at Montreal Science Centre during COP15. There is also a digital component that includes a website where visitors learn about climate change science, get inspired with ways they can take action, share their story, and see where the exhibitions are headed. A comprehensive social media campaign features educational videos and infographics about climate change.
9:30-11:00 Innavik: Leading the way to a clean energy future Concordia University; Indigenous Clean Energy The story shared in the short film "Innavik: Leading the way to a clean energy future" is one of true climate leadership. The people of Inukjuak are in the process of building a massive hydroelectric facility (run-of-river, which avoids water storage unlike a traditional dam), that will replace diesel usage by almost 100%. By the time the project is up and running in just a few months, their per capita greenhouse gas reductions will be more than what any other community in Canada has ever done.
11:30-12:30 High-level panel on impacts of plastic pollution on biodiversity: Towards an international Treaty on Plastic Pollution Environment and Climate Change Canada Plastic pollution constitutes a planetary crisis with impacts on ecosystems, biodiversity, and climate. Volumes of plastic pollution flowing into marine areas will nearly triple by 2040. Plastic pollution affects marine life through various pathways, including ingestion, entanglement, toxic impacts, and more. In a 2016 report, the Secretariat of the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) recognized that marine debris is a globally significant stressor on the marine and coastal environment. This event will provide an opportunity to discuss an evidence-based vision to end plastic pollution as a new international legally binding instrument on plastic pollution, including in the marine environment is in development, with the aim to conclude negotiation by the end of 2024.
14:00-15:30 Natural Climate Solutions: Transformative collaborations for a nature- and climate-positive economy Nature United Canada The Government of Canada has committed upwards of $5 billion towards Natural Climate Solutions (NCS). These investments are already yielding important mitigation, adaptation, biodiversity and related social and economic co-benefits on agricultural lands, forests and Indigenous territories. Yet much more will be needed from all sources to extract the full potential of NCS in Canada. Many public and private investors are ready to do their part but struggling to evaluate opportunities within an increasingly complex landscape for financing and implementing NCS initiatives. Uniting leaders from key sectors and orders of government, this event explores the collaborations and financing approaches that show promise for leveraging the power of NCS in agriculture, forestry and Indigenous communities. Participants will walk away with a better understanding of the actions various stakeholders and rights holders can take to maximize the advantages of NCS in key sectors.
17:00-18:30 Protected Areas: Part of the solution to implementing the twin crises of biodiversity loss and climate change IUCN, World Commission on Protected Areas;
Wildlife Conservation Society; Canadian Committee for IUCN; Wild Heritage; NatureServe; David Suzuki Foundation; Australian Rainforest Society; Islands Trust Conservancy; Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society
Consensus has emerged, in the scientific and policy communities, on the importance of addressing the twin crises of biodiversity loss and climate together. The protection of existing high-biodiversity, carbon-dense ecosystems has been identified by many as the most important action to address this nexus. Short introductory remarks and a panel discussion will explore ways in which synergies between climate change and biodiversity are being implemented and develop recommendations on the most effective policies to address the biodiversity/climate change nexus, particularly in relation to protected and conserved areas.
19:30-20:30 Innovations to better integrate biodiversity conservation and poverty reduction: The case of populations in forest zones of West Africa Centre d'étude et de coopération internationale (CECI); Centre for Biodiversity Genomics, University of Guelph A large proportion of the human populations living in rural areas of West Africa depend on natural resources and biodiversity for their livelihoods and food security. Several ecosystems in this region contain a very high level of plant and animal biodiversity, including the Guinean forests, which extend from Guinea in the west to Cameroon in the east and are described as a biodiversity hotspot due to the presence of numerous endemic species, among others. Although the region is still relatively unknown globally for large groups of species as well as for its many regions and sub-regions, this biodiversity is threatened by anthropogenic activities as well as by the effects of current and projected climate change, including increased average temperatures and greater variability and irregularity of rainfall on an annual basis as well as over longer periods.
