1st draft of the post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework released
On 12 July 2021, the 1st draft of the post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework debuted.
This comes ahead of the 15th meeting of the Conference of the Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity (COP15) in October, to develop the post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework. With 21 action targets, the draft proposes new achievable goals while underlining the need for action given what is at stake for nature and humanity at this critical point.
This first draft will adopt a framework as a stepping stone towards the 2050 Vision of “Living in harmony with nature”, and will undergo further refinement and negotiation before consideration at the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) COP15 meeting of 196 Parties in Kunming, China.
