cbd25-logo-enDE Founder and Pres­i­dent, David Oswald is par­tic­i­pat­ing in the sci­ence and tech­nol­o­gy (SBSTTA) and imple­men­ta­tion (SBI) meet­ings of the Unit­ed Nations Con­ven­tion on Bio­log­i­cal Diver­si­ty.

DE will be shar­ing expe­ri­ence work­ing at the region­al and nation­al lev­el devel­op­ing soft­ware plat­forms for inte­grat­ing envi­ron­men­tal data. This work is par­tic­u­lar­ly rel­e­vant to atten­dees of these meet­ings because DE and Caribbean part­ner MGI are work­ing with the gov­ern­ment of Saint Lucia to help them report to the Unit­ed Nations Con­ven­tion on Bio­log­i­cal Diver­si­ty.

Two of the over­ar­ch­ing themes of these meet­ings are: (a) main­stream­ing bio­di­ver­si­ty and ecosys­tems into deci­sion mak­ing, and (b) real­iz­ing “trans­for­ma­tion­al change” in how bio­di­ver­si­ty and ecosys­tems are con­sid­ered in gov­er­nance.

DE brings to this dis­cus­sion eigh­teen years of expe­ri­ence tak­ing on very tough design and envi­ron­men­tal chal­lenges. Our team’s expe­ri­ence, cre­ativ­i­ty, agili­ty, and focus on qual­i­ty has result­ed in a series of suc­cess­es that have proven the point that the com­bi­na­tion of design skills with deep envi­ron­men­tal knowl­edge can pro­duce excel­lent results.

As human­i­ty is con­front­ed with a pro­found need to decou­ple envi­ron­men­tal degra­da­tion from eco­nom­ic activ­i­ty and safe­guard the glob­al envi­ron­ment, the DE team is step­ping up to bat to ral­ly indi­vid­u­als and orga­ni­za­tions to rise to the chal­lenge of this gen­er­a­tion.
