Event cre­ation, pre­sen­ta­tion design, and video pro­duc­tion for a side event at the United Nations Con­ven­tion on Bio­di­ver­sity COP 10 Con­fer­ence in Nagoya, Japan. The side event focused on bio­di­ver­sity preser­va­tion, car­bon mar­kets, and capac­ity build­ing in the Demo­c­ra­tic Repub­lic of the Congo and was con­ducted in con­junc­tion with DE affil­i­ate, the BDA Foun­da­tion. DE pro­vided con­tent direc­tion to the video for this pre­sen­ta­tion which was edited and directed by Mr. David Eberts. The DE team also cre­ated a graphic brochure for this side event to accom­pany the DVD pro­duced. The real chal­lenge of this project was to con­dense down a very large amount of infor­ma­tion related to cli­mate change pol­icy, capac­ity devel­op­ment, and the BDA project, and com­mu­ni­cate it in an effec­tive way to the audi­ence. Gov­ern­ment offi­cials, cor­po­rate lead­ers, and mem­bers of envi­ron­men­tal non-governmental orga­ni­za­tions that attended all com­mented on the human­ity of the project that was pre­sented. The side event man­aged to meet its objec­tive: to put a human face on bio­di­ver­sity preser­va­tion and cli­mate change adap­ta­tion in Africa.
