World Biodiversity Summit - Part 3

Taking place on 11 December, World Biodiversity Summit is the pioneering event that brings together leaders from the public and private sectors with the aim of the tackling one of the biggest crises facing our planet today – biodiversity loss.

The summit is the third part of this year’s summit series, held alongside the key international events shaping the global biodiversity agenda. This year, we started the conversations with our summits in New York and Sharm el-Sheikh alongside New York Climate Week and UNFCCC COP27 respectively.  Now, we are headed to Montreal alongside the UNCBD COP15 – a COP that will be a decisive moment for our natural world as negotiators finalise the Post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework.

In order for the the goals of the new Framework to be met, it is important that all sectors are on board - from business, industry, and finance to government and civil society. In bringing together sector leaders, World Biodiversity Summit facilitates the necessary cross-sector dialogue in solutions-oriented discussions about the most pressing issues in global biodiversity. The summit series adopted an action-based and forward-looking approach, showcasing examples of best practice and innovation, and serving as a catalyst for new partnerships and bold investments.  

At World Biodiversity Summit - Part 3, panel discussions and fireside chats will address some of the most crucial issues in biodiversity. Themes will include the circular economy, regenerative agriculture, equitable access to biodiversity solutions, and sustainable forest management.
