The 26th meeting of the Subsidiary Body on Scientific, Technical and Technological Advice (SBSTTA26) and 4th meeting of the Subsidiary Body on Implementation (SBI4) are expected to address crucial elements of the Kunming-Montreal Global Biodiversity Framework (GBF), such as the monitoring framework, the resource mobilization strategy, the knowledge management component of the GBF, and the modalities for conducting periodic global reviews of progress on implementation, before COP16.

Other issues under consideration will be marine and coastal biodiversity, health and biodiversity, and scientific and technical needs to support the implementation of the Framework, among others.

IUCN will follow the negotiations, putting forward its knowledge, conservation tools and standards and the wealth of experience vested in the Union providing scientifically-sound inputs for the implementation of the targets, and assessing progress towards meeting them, in line with IUCN Resolution 7.116, and many others. In addition to the negotiations, IUCN will host a number of side-events to showcase our work and support Parties in the implementation of the Framework.

Specific recommendations for both SBSTTA26 and SBI4 can be found in IUCN's position papers, below.
