COP15: Develop new global goals on biodiversity in a framework


    From 11/10 - 15/10/2021, the 15th meeting of the Conference of the Parties to the UN Convention on Biological Diversity (COP15) was held online in Kunming (China), with themed "Ecological Civilization: Building a Shared Future for All Life on Earth".

    The meeting reviewed the outcome and implementation of the Convention on Biological Diversity's strategic plan from the previous decade regarding biodiversity and made the decision on its post-2020 global biodiversity framework. The framework includes a set of global goals, targets and indicators that will guide conservation efforts for the next 10 years. It will replace and update the Aichi Biodiversity Targets - the previous global strategic plan for biodiversity created in 2010.

    In addition to agreeing to this new biodiversity framework at COP 15, countries negotiated financing arrangements and establish a mechanism to implement the plan of action to bring about a transformation in society’s relationship with biodiversity and to ensure that, by 2050, the shared vision of living in harmony with nature is fulfilled.

    At the meeting, 196 countries lso looked for the implementation of the protocols of the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) that deal with the fair and equitable sharing of benefits from the use of nature and the safe transport, handling and labelling of Living Modified Organisms. Simultaneously, the meeting addressed agenda items essential to the continued operations of the biodiversity convention and its two Protocols.
