CBD in a Nutshell – A Guidebook to the CBD Process

GYBN proudly presents “CBD in a Nutshell – A Guidebook to the CBD Process”


Building upon GYBN’s experience in providing capacity-building trainings to youth representatives, the objective of the guidebook is to help CBD delegates to better understand the process and to provide them with all the information they need to participate effectively in the negotiations. Making extensive use of visualizations and other reader-friendly tools, it explains how the CBD-process works, introduces all relevant institutions and mechanisms, provides summaries of the most important issues in the negotiations and explains all steps of the decision-making-process.
