Theme 5: Existing information-sharing measures, online discussion group 3 [#11163]
POSTED ON BEHALF OF THE MODERATORS OF THE FORUM

Dear Forum Participants,

We are pleased and honoured to have been invited to moderate the online discussions on non-state actors’ engagement in the Action Agenda for Nature and People.

Please find below the guiding questions for this theme below.

Please note that the discussions for the on Online discussion group 3 will be held from 4 October 2021 to 17 October 2021.

Please note that participants must register and sign into the BCH in order to post messages.
Individuals wishing to participate via e-mail after these initial messages can choose to “watch” the discussions taking place under the different themes. These individuals will then receive copies of the posted messages by e-mail.

We look forward to your discussions.

We would also like to encourage you to view the recorded session of the webinar on biosafety commitments to the Action Agenda if you were not able to participate in the webinar. The recorded webinar will be available at https://www.learningfornature.org/en/courses/biosafety-commitments-for-the-action-agenda-for-nature-and-people/.

Theme 5: Existing information-sharing measures

1. Which profiling and information-sharing measures on the Action Agenda website and the social media platforms would be best for non-state actors to be profiled through online (e.g. web stories, videos, Infographics, social media postings/flyers, new articles, newsletter, quotes)? Please visit the existing features at https://www.cbd.int/portals/action-agenda/

2. How can IT open source components from the Action Agenda be useful in sharing information (e.g. making use of biosafety categories in the Action Agenda to showcase on external/partners websites and/or for the Action Agenda to showcase partners commitments automatically through interoperability such as statistics, pledges viewed on two websites)? Please visit the GIT HUB, the Action Agenda Network with the open source components at https://scbd.github.io/action-agenda-components/

3. Who are the non-state actors that are the most users of the national biosafety websites that could be engaged?

4. How can the new BCH Platform, soon to be launched, support the sharing of information on biosafety commitments from the Action Agenda? How do you use the Biosafety Clearing-House (BCH) in your work? What content do you most frequently seek in the BCH?

This is a reply to 11163 RE: Theme 5: Existing information-sharing measures, online discussion group 3 [#11224]
Dear participants
I would like to share with you some thoughts on this specific issue.
1. I would like first to highlight the fact that non-state actors to be engaged in biosafety and biodiversity conservation have to rely on sound measures for online information sharing using such media. However, in several developing countries they may encounter technical and financial constraints and socio-political barriers.
Again I stress the importance of commitments of governments (1) to share part of their biodiversity loans and grants with those non-state actors with uncertain resources and (2) include them into their national and local policies.
Cities, small NGOs and many local communities don’t have the minimum guarantee to assist governments in the huge effort of biodiversity conservation.
2. without doubt, open source materials would help these non-state actors in  promoting their engagement. As stated earlier, capacity building should be a continuous and constant compound of the action agenda.
3. I think that key stakeholders (business men, seed producers, farmers) are actually the most important users of biosafety websites. Later, once a funding system is established for small non-state actors (NGOs, cities and local communities) these will not solely use these websites but promote them through their own communication channels including verbal and presential contacts.
4. Some regions of the globe still need support and assistance to fully benefit from the BCH. Its new look should be easier to use and above all comprehensive as it provides one of the most extensive source of information not solely on LMOs but also on countries’ decisions and risk assessments done so far.

This is a reply to 11165 RE: Thème 5 : Mesures existantes de partage d'informations, le groupe de discussion en ligne 3 [#11225]
Chers participants
Je voudrais partager avec vous quelques réflexions sur cette question spécifique.
1. Je voudrais tout d'abord souligner le fait que les acteurs non étatiques pour s'engager dans la biosécurité et la conservation de la biodiversité doivent s'appuyer sur des mesures solides pour le partage d'informations en ligne à l'aide de ces médias. Cependant, dans plusieurs pays en développement, ils peuvent rencontrer des contraintes techniques et financières et des barrières socio-politiques.
Encore une fois, j'insiste sur l'importance des engagements des gouvernements (1) à partager une partie de leurs prêts et subventions pour la biodiversité avec les acteurs non étatiques aux ressources incertaines et (2) à les inclure dans leurs politiques nationales et locales.
Les villes, les petites ONG et de nombreuses communautés locales n'ont pas la garantie minimale d'aider les gouvernements dans l'énorme effort de conservation de la biodiversité.
2. sans aucun doute, les matériaux open source aideraient ces acteurs non étatiques à promouvoir leur engagement. Comme indiqué précédemment, le renforcement des capacités devrait être un élément continu et constant du programme d'action.
3. Je pense que les principales parties prenantes (hommes d'affaires, producteurs de semences, agriculteurs) sont en fait les utilisateurs les plus importants des sites Web sur la biosécurité. Plus tard, une fois qu'un système de financement est mis en place pour les petits acteurs non étatiques (ONG, villes et communautés locales), ceux-ci n'utiliseront pas uniquement ces sites Web mais les promouvront via leurs propres canaux de communication, y compris les contacts verbaux et présentiels.
4. Certaines régions du globe ont encore besoin de soutien et d'assistance pour bénéficier pleinement du CEPRB. Son nouveau look devrait être plus facile à utiliser et surtout complet car il fournit l'une des sources d'informations les plus complètes non seulement sur les OVM mais aussi sur les décisions des pays et les évaluations des risques réalisées jusqu'à présent.

1. Videos would be best for non-state actors to be profiled through online.

2. The IT open-source components from the Action Agenda can be useful in sharing information through a modular system to form an Action Agenda Network, which can be used to acquire, filter and showcase actions for your initiative, programme or organization's environmental cause, as well as address FAQs for greater knowledge biosafety and biodiversity issues.

3. The non-state actors that are the most users of the national biosafety websites that could be engaged are the NGOs and educational institutions. They access the websites to obtain information and relevant resources through available links and guidance materials.

4. I use the BCH to source resources materials, especially for biosafety. I equally use it to post relevant responses and messages for online forum discussions. Bch is a vent for information dissemination and sharing of Knowledge and experience. It is very efficient in developing contents. I frequently seek biosafety related records and statistical information in the BCH.

This is a reply to 11228 RE: Theme 5: Existing information-sharing measures, online discussion group 3 [#11231]
Q 1. In principle, all of the above measures are good. It seems to me that in modern society, simple, understandable and illustrative web stories, infographics posted both on the Convention website, on partner websites, and in popular social networks will be one of the best options.
Also, for countries where there are problems with the Internet, it would be good to make small and illustrative brochures that are understandable for different categories of non-state actors and distribute them with the help of national organizations. The key here  is to identify all the actors at the national leveland present this information to them either in the form of a mailing list, or indeed, come and bring brochures to the indigenous peoples, because, as already noted in one of the discussions on the forum, this is more effective.
Q3. I will say from our experience, in another country it may be different, these are regulatory bodies, higher educational institutions, the interested public and NGOs. Large business companies are not easy to attract to this, but we must try.
Q4. To be honest, the BCH does a lot anyway, posting a vast amount of useful information that can be used by all categories of users. We use (I mean different categories of users in our country) all sections, I can't single out one. The new BCH will continue this tradition, and as I see it now, it will also contain video, it will be more interactive, which is very good.
It is also important that more information is now being published in all 6 UN languages which would help to attract more and more actors. If training videos and materials are available in more languages, it will be even better.

Best regards,

Galina Mozgova.

1. Videos would be best for non-state actors to be profiled through online. This is to strategically increase their visibility and other strategic actions, to enhance the implementation and mainstreaming of the Action Agenda.

2.

Dear Friends,
Communicating information play an important role for awareness, disseminating messages and education. The tools of communication and guidance prepared by CBD secretariat, biosafety protocol and materials including video, flyers, news paper and other documents are valuable and useful for IPLCs, including IPLCs women and youth. Social media e.g. Facebook, twitters and online communication can play a vital role to decimate and reach out them to IPLCs. Due to connectivity issues and access of internet and other means of communication, Most of IPLCs are not able to get the information. Also, languages and the terminological difficulties, IPLCs, women are not much follow of the subject matter. Therefore, capacity building and education activities are in cultural appropriate or in own language heard or raised by IPLCs.It might be the issues on this theme less contribution, I assumed

Active information dissemination plays an essential role. It is even more important to provide non-state actors with sufficient information about the type and scope of information available through BCH.

Question 4 - How can the new BCH Platform, soon to be launched, support the sharing of information on biosafety commitments from the Action Agenda? How do you use the Biosafety Clearing-House (BCH) in your work? What content do you most frequently seek in the BCH?

Taking these individual questions in order:
-How can the new BCH Platform, soon to be launched, support the sharing of information on biosafety commitments from the Action Agenda?
--The new BCH Platform could provide a link under the Resources Tab that would connect users to the Action Agenda homepage, as well as providing a separate page that details commitments that apply solely to biosafety.
-How do you use the Biosafety Clearing-House (BCH) in your work?
--I use the BCH to participate in online forums, locate submissions from Parties’, and obtain information on the latest activities conducted under the Protocol.

Thank you,
Adam

Agreed, Adam - the B.C.H. platform, in whatever guise, is meant to be the one-stop venue for all matters biosafety-related. Links to the Action Agenda home page, highlighting specific information and any applicable related updates to country or other positions, would be sensible additions.
