Adianez Taboada, Cuba's deputy minister of Science, Technology and the Environment (CITMA), will join the high-level segment of the 15th meeting of the Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Convention on Biological Diversity (COP15), to be held between December 15 and 17 in Montreal, Canada.
The two-week summit, which has been underway since December 7, is expected to be the largest biodiversity conference in a decade, with countries hoping to reach an agreement on the protection and restoration of nature.
Civil society groups, native peoples, scientists, business leaders and others will participate as observers, and through parallel events. In addition, hundreds of journalists will cover the negotiations.
