Report from UNEP on preparations for the post-2020 global biodiversity framework.
Is our spaceship and its life support systems in good hands at the global level? Or are global good intentions on biodiversity just more of what Greta Thunberg calls "blah, blah, blah"? Read this report and see how you feel afterwards.
In decision 14/34, the Conference of the Parties set out the process for developing a post-2020 global biodiversity framework, established the Open-ended Working Group on the Post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework to support this process and designated its Co-Chairs. Subsequently, the Open-ended Working Group at its first meeting requested the Co-Chairs and the Executive Secretary, with the oversight of the Bureau, to continue the preparatory process in accordance with decisions 14/34, CP-9/7 and NP-3/15, and to prepare documentation, including a zero draft text of the post-2020 global biodiversity framework1 for consideration by the Working Group at its second meeting.
