The link between biodiversity loss and climate change being drivers of one another is clear. Much as the acceleration of the climate crisis fuels the loss of habitats and species, the biodiversity crisis means the loss of landscapes that act as important carbon sinks, in turn hastening the rate of climate change. The result is an even greater threat to planetary health.
With over 10 years of experience in the climate and sustainability field, World Climate Foundation launched World Biodiversity Summit, recognising this inherent interconnectedness. The Summit is the pioneering global public-private partnership to address the urgent need for biodiversity restoration through nature-based solutions and nature-positive investments.
By convening leaders from governments, businesses, international organisations, academia and civil society, the World Biodiversity Summit offers a dedicated and much-needed forum to increase promising solutions through cross-sectoral and

Transitioning to a Resilient Future
After its successful launch last year, the Summit is returning for its second edition with a continued objective of emphasising the necessity of linking biodiversity and climate goals. World Biodiversity Summit 2022 will take place in two parts alongside the two pivotal events: UNGA 77 and COP27.
This year, we seek to enhance investments in nature and explore nature market opportunities for strong partnerships and transformative policies that are required to achieve impacts guided by the Post-2020 Global Framework for Biodiversity.
As we aim to bring economic growth within safe planetary boundaries, World Biodiversity Summit acts as a platform to support the transition to a resilient future by forming coalitions to mobilise the action and investment needed to halt biodiversity loss. By using public-private sector ambition loops to achieve the required policies, innovations and investments, the Summit aligns with the 2030 climate targets and a net-zero and nature-positive world by 2050.
