In April 2022, the Conference of Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) will gather in Kunming, China. The meeting, delayed for the third time due to the COVID-19 pandemic, will bring together 196 nations and territories.
It is billed as one of the last, best opportunities to halt biodiversity loss and put the world’s lands and oceans on a pathway to sustainability. At the top of the agenda will be a new strategy to advance nature protection for the next decade. This strategy, known as the Post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework (GBF), will replace and extend the Strategic Plan for Biodiversity and its 20 Aichi Biodiversity Targets, which were agreed in 2011.
