The World Biodiversity Summit was thrilled to serve as an opportunity to convene stakeholders from the public and private sectors on the crucial topics of biodiversity loss and restoration and investing in nature-based solutions on the sidelines of COP26. 


Through the lens of public-private partnerships, leadership and finance in nature-based solutions, World Biodiversity Summit Part 3 offered new perspectives on how to restore biodiversity, further exploring the crucial agendas to undertake strategizing around biodiversity in the fight against climate change. 


Our strong and ambitious programme highlighted bold leadership and investments, built cross-sectoral partnerships and developed initiatives for the conservation and regeneration of the world’s ecosystems.
