COP 15 is over, now what? Translating the Kunming-Montreal Global Biodiversity Framework
After a global pandemic and 4 years of negotiations and consultations, Parties adopted the Kunming-Montreal Global Biodiversity Framework (KM-GBF) as part of a ‘package’ of 6 decisions to support its implementation, including decisions on the monitoring framework, capacity building, resource mobilisation, planning monitoring and review, and digital sequence information (DSI). The time now is for implementation. The IUCN Programme, Nature 2030, sets its ambition in a decadal timeframe (2021 – 2030) and provides a roadmap for the Union that significantly contributes to the Goals and Targets set in the KM-GBF.
This event, the last of the series “The last sprint to COP15”, will provide participants IUCN’s take on the new framework, highlight how the IUCN Programme and tools contribute to its implementation. IUCN experts will discuss some ongoing work and future plans for reaching Targets closest to IUCN’s heartland.
