From Commitment to Implementation: Actionable Leadership for Nature 

11 December - Closing Session


The Post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework has the potential to be a turning point for the protection of nature and in the fight against biodiversity loss. However, meeting the long-term vision of ‘living in harmony with nature by 2050’ will require strong leadership in the short-term in order to translate the new targets into action.


In this closing panel, key stakeholders will reflect on the outcomes of COP15 so far, particularly as they apply to business and finance. They will discuss how the targets outlined in the Post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework will inform their practice over the next year, and how they intend to meet short-term targets in time for COP16.
