The review period of the first order drafts of the sustaimable use assessment (which ran from 27 August to 20 October 2019) is a key point in the assessment process. An ILK dialogue workshop was held on 9 and 9 October 2019 in the Montreal, Canada. The aim of the dialogue was for IPLC participants to critical review the contents of the drafts to provide feedback to authors regarding strengths, gaps, and additional sources of information and expertise. The results of the dialogue will be entered into the review process of the assessment, for attention of the author teams as they further develop the assessment.
This dialogue workshop was the second of a series of dialogue workshops held during the assessment process. These dialogues are part of a range of activities aimed at IPLC participation, with an overall aim of facilitating the explicit and coherent cross-cutting incorporation of ILK views and IPLC needs into the assessment.
