The CEESP Steering Committee met in Honolulu, Hawaii in advance of next year’s World Conservation Congress. The meeting was held November 13-15th with two field trips to visit Native Hawai’ian community biocultural conservation initiatives in Oahu and Hawai’i islands, as well as a site visit to the Hawai’i Convention Centre which will be the venue for the World Conservation Congress.
The SC meeting developed a new draft Mandate for CEESP 2016-2020 which includes new areas of focus for the Commission and progresses existing work. The SC also interviewed and nominated two candidates for the new CEESP Chair, and planned the Commission’s contribution to the upcoming Congress.
