The UfM CoPresidency and Secretariat are organising an online Webinar on COP15 Biodiversity – Outcomes, follow up and way forward, on 07 March 2023, from 09.00 to 11.15 CET

After 4 years of negotiation, at COP15 in December parties to the UN Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) finally adopted the Kunming-Montreal Global Biodiversity Framework, complemented by decisions on Monitoring, Reporting and Review, Resource Mobilisation, Digital Sequence Information and Capacity Building.

Taken together the Kunming-Montreal Framework and the Paris Agreement contain a comprehensive set of commitments the implementation of which will put nature on a clear path to recovery and bring us closer to a global economy that conserves biodiversity and is based on sustainable use of biodiversity.  The swift, efficient and effective implementation of the Framework is also needed to keep the 1.5°C goal alive and requires the engagement of all government, all society and economy.
