Partnering for Nature
Catalysing Nature-Positive Investments Through Public-Private Partnerships
World Biodiversity Summit returns for its 4th edition on 26 September on the sidelines of the UNGA 79 and Climate Week NYC and reconvenes later on 27 October alongside pivotal COP16 in Cali, Colombia.
This year, the programme will be pioneering global public-private partnerships to address the urgent need for biodiversity restoration through nature-based solutions and nature-positive investments, bridging the climate and biodiversity agendas.
To foster harmony with nature and effectively enact the Kunming-Montreal Global Biodiversity Framework, this year's World Biodiversity Summit will explore the synergies between climate and biodiversity, fostering cross-agenda collaboration and actionable implementation strategies. The summit engages companies, civil society and financial institutions to bolster support for nature, mitigate environmental risks, and amplify business opportunities on a larger scale.
By convening leaders from governments, businesses, international organisations, academia and civil society, World Biodiversity Summit offers a dedicated and much-needed forum to increase promising solutions through cross-sectoral and cross-border collaboration.

Unlocking Ambition, Partnerships, and Investments for a Net-Zero and Nature-Positive Future
As a part of the World Biodiversity Network, World Biodiversity Summit hosts sessions alongside other initiatives of the World Climate Foundation, bridging the climate, finance and health discussions with the biodiversity agenda.
World Biodiversity Summit stands out in the 2024 Roadmap as the main annual biodiversity summit in the world. Building on the success of the last years, World Biodiversity Summit promotes collaboration between the public and private sectors to explore and realise a myriad of opportunities presented by the net-zero, nature-positive transition.
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.
