World Biodiversity Summit 2021 Part 1&2
Advancing Progress Together
Evidence of biodiversity loss is everywhere and climate change is contributing to this loss. But, biodiversity loss does not only refer to the loss of plants and animals, it threatens all life on our planet. The state of the natural environment is directly linked to our ability to adapt, mitigate and solve the challenges that our planet is facing nowadays. As we aim to bring economic growth within safe planetary boundaries, achieve the Paris Agreement goals and support the Post-2020 Global Framework, cross-sector synergy is crucial.
The goal of the World Biodiversity Summit is to bridge biodiversity and climate and to accelerate investment-driven solutions to the biodiversity crisis. The Summit will serve as a convening for leaders from across public and private sectors, to set the world on a path to achieve the 2050 Vision for Biodiversity through actionable leadership and supporting the facilitation of a task force on nature-related financial disclosures.
Measurable targets and commitments will be established, determining best practices for innovation and collaboration and creating public-private partnerships that will strengthen initiatives to prevent the ongoing destruction of biodiversity, therefore contributing to a healthy planet.
