A new key biodiversity platform for cross sectoral collaboration
For its inaugural launch, World Biodiversity Summit will help define what world leaders and the private sector in biodiversity and climate action need to do in the medium and long term to achieve sustainable development and hinder further biodiversity loss, focusing on partnerships and investment mechanisms as levers of progress. World Biodiversity Summit is a platform for responding to accelerating biodiversity loss, by using the Paris Agreement as a framework to learn from, promoting relevant solutions, innovations, and leadership networks, strengthening nature restoration and conservation. Nature-based solutions will be highlighted, from specificecosystems to global possibilities.

Cross-Sector Collaboration for Nature’s Survival
Keynote "Solutions for Nature's Survival" by Katie Critchlow, Chief Executive Officer, NatureMetrics
11 December - Fireside Chat 3
The twin climate and biodiversity crises are making our planet more unpredictable and more prone to natural disasters. Therefore, the combined expertise and efforts of the private and public sectors will be crucial in order avoid ecosystem collapse and limit biodiversity loss.
Public-private partnerships have the potential to catalyse economic opportunities in nature restoration, and drive the innovations and new technologies that will be crucial to achieve a nature-positive future.
In this panel discussion, public and private stakeholders will discuss the importance of crosssector collaboration when it comes to tackling the biodiversity and climate crisis.
