Workshop participants heard presentations from pilot countries, including Viet Nam, New Caledonia and Bermuda, as well as presentations on tools and activities. A representative of the UN Environment Programme (UNEP) focused on the UNEP Decision Support Framework for ecosystem-based approaches to adaptation and a series of guidelines on ecosystem-based adaptation; a Birdlife International representative addressed the opportunities for synergies offered through the Aichi targets, especially with regards to ecosystem-based approaches to adaptation and REDD+; and a UNEP-World Conservation Monitoring Centre (WCMC) representative presented on the UNEP-Global Environment Facility (GEF) project "Integrating approaches to national reporting to the Rio Conventions," intended to reduce the reporting burden on countries through improving the harmonization of reports to CBD, the UN Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD) and the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).
