The UN Biodiversity Conference, which includes the second part of the 15th meeting of the Conference of the Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD CoP15), will convene governments from around the world to agree to a new set of goals and targets for nature as part of a post-2020 global biodiversity framework. The current draft of post-2020 framework sets out an ambitious plan to guide governments in implementing actions - from protected and conserved areas to ending unsustainable exploitation - that will bring about a transformation in society’s relationship with biodiversity. However, it all remains subject to final negotiations in Montreal.

The Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) urges CBD Parties to ensure that the post-2020 global biodiversity framework (GBF), as adopted by Parties at CBD CoP15.2 in December 2022, does the following:
The Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) has been working for more than 125 years to save wildlife and wild places, and we have conservation programs on the ground and in the water in more than 60 countries.
We work with our partners in government, Indigenous Peoples and local communities, and other stakeholders, and we leverage our experience at the protected area, and landscape/seascape scale, to address regional and global conservation issues. It is this global experience we bring to our recommendations on a post-2020 global biodiversity framework under the CBD.
Join more than one million wildlife lovers working to save the Earth's most treasured and threatened species.
