Mitigating climate change and halting the loss of biodiversity are two critical issues that are deeply interconnected. Many of the drivers, challenges and solutions are one and the same, and they must be addressed together.
By creating a bridge between COP15 and COP26, the World Biodiversity Summit will play an important role in ensuring that the conversations, outcomes and commitments that come out of these meetings are aligned, and move the system towards the transformative change that’s needed to halt warming at 1.5°C and reverse the degradation of the natural world.”
