Preparations for the Post-2020 Biodiversity Framework
During the fifteenth meeting of the Conference of the Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity will adopt a post-2020 global biodiversity framework as a stepping stone towards the 2050 Vision of “”Living in harmony with nature”. In its decision 14/34 the Conference of the Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity adopted a comprehensive and participatory process for the preparation of the post-2020 global biodiversity framework.
The negotiations to develop the post-2020 global biodiversity framework, prior to the fifteenth meeting of the Conference of the Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity, are being undertaken by a dedicated open-ended intersessional working group under the leadership of its two co-chairs, Mr. Francis Ogwal (Uganda) and Mr. Basile van Havre (Canada) and overseen by the Bureau of the Conference of the Parties.
The process adopted by Parties to develop the post-2020 global biodiversity framework contains a set of principles to guide its implementation, an organization of work and sets out a comprehensive consultation process, including provisions for global, regional and thematic consultation meetings. An information note on ways and means to contribute to the development of the post-2020 global biodiversity framework has been developed to provide background information and to outline various opportunities for Parties, other Governments, and all relevant organizations and stakeholders to participate.
Updates on the implementation of the process for developing the post-2020 global biodiversity framework will be made available here and this page will be regularly updated. In this light please continue to consult this page for up to date information on the post-2020 process.
