The UN Biodiversity Conference took place in Cancun Mexico from 2 - 17 December, 2016. Over 7,000 participants from 170 countries and over 400 organizations came together to combine efforts to protect biodiversity on a global scale. The Cartagena and the Nagoya protocols were an essential component of this meeting as these two crucial international agreements strive for the safe and fair use of genetic resources.

Representatives from the iGEM Foundation along with a group of 5 iGEM delegates attended the 13th Conference of the Parties in order to be part of the international conversation regarding synthetic biology.
