The Post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework under the United Nations Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) will be adopted at CBD COP-15, set to be organized in Montreal, Canada, in December this year. The Framework comprises 21 broad-based action targets and 10 ‘milestones’ proposed for 2030 to drive a transformation in the society-biodiversity relationship to fulfil the Convention’s 2050 vision of “living in harmony with nature”.
As a culmination of the same, WCS-India launched a digital literacy and outreach campaign in April 2022 to generate awareness and understanding about the significance of the 30x30 Target (target 3) of the Post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework. The 30x30 Target is an initiative by a coalition of governments and NGOs which aims to protect and conserve 30% of Earth’s land and sea areas through ‘area-based conservation measures’, especially areas of particular socio-ecological importance for biodiversity and its various services to people by 2030. By protecting at least 30% of such regions (minimum 30% based on scientific evidence), the world gets a renewed chance to address climate change, halt and reverse irreparable biodiversity loss and species extinction, and ensure the continued benefits people derive from biodiversity.
