2021 will see the agreement by the world’s governments of a bold Biodiversity Framework through 2030, with an eye toward a planet in harmony with nature by 2050. Building on the indivisible relation between the wellbeing of people and the wellbeing of nature, this session will begin by looking back to the past decade, identifying reasons for hope in national and local action on biodiversity. The session will then look forward, identifying key elements required for achieving success, including bold political will, coherent and aligned government policies, integration and alignment of a wide range of economic sectors, adequate resource mobilization, and decisive action, among others.
This session will take place on 28 September 2020, 11:00-12:30 PM (EDT). The event will be broadcast live on this page.
