Partnering for Nature
Catalysing Nature-Positive Investments Through Public-Private Partnerships
World Biodiversity Summit returned on 21 September on the sidelines of UNGA 78 and Climate Week NYC.
It was the pioneering platform for global public-private partnerships to address the urgent need for biodiversity restoration through Nature-based Solutions and nature-positive investments, bridging climate and biodiversity agendas.
With the implementation of the Kunming-Montreal Global Biodiversity Framework in mind, this years' World Biodiversity Summit programme was designed to encourage companies and financial institutions to ensure sustainable production patterns and reduce risks while identifying opportunities derived from nature.
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 cross-border collaboration.

Transitioning to a Nature-Positive Future
As a part of the World Biodiversity Network, World Biodiversity Summit hosted sessions alongside other initiatives of the World Climate Foundation, bridging the climate, finance and health discussions with the biodiversity agenda.
World Biodiversity Summit stood out in the 2023 roadmap as the main annual biodiversity summit in the world. Building on the success of the last year, World Biodiversity Summit promoted collaboration between the public and private sectors to foster ambition loops, leading to bold commitments across the global biodiversity arena.
The climate and biodiversity crises are closely linked and equally serious. Unless we address biodiversity loss and the degradation of nature with similar urgency to that of climate change, we will not achieve the climate targets or the Sustainable Development Goals. Cooperation across sectors is therefore vital, and I commend the World Biodiversity Summit for facilitating this exchange.
