The meeting was co-organized by Tribal Links and the Secretariat of the CBD and co-sponsored by the Natural Resources Stewardship Circle. Over the meeting, the group comprised of indigenous peoples, local communities and industry representatives worked on a set of draft guidelines, intended to operationalize a declaration made by the industry in October.
