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.

Partnering for Nature
World Biodiversity Summit believes collaboration with partners is essential for achieving lasting policy changes for a nature-positive future. Having a collaborative approach and developing long-term relationships allows us to accomplish far more than we could alone.
Alongside strategic networking with high-level decision makers and advantageous knowledge sharing opportunities, our partners benefit from the following value drivers:
Influencing the Future
Helping to define the future for nature-positive markets and economical activities, engaging with other leaders and experts in the field of biodiversity.
Positioning our partners’ organisations as international leaders in sustainable solutions and strategies through engagement and communication opportunities at World Biodiversity Summit.
Engaging with influential coalitions, alliances, key investment accelerators and development banks for sustainable and
Ambition & Action
Enhancing our partners’ ambitions and action plans for measured global impact supported by our extensive experience and in-depth consultation.
The importance of investing in nature is often not immediately apparent to the financial sector. It is crucial therefore to push forward natural capital as an asset class - because, ultimately, investing in biodiversity is investing in human health, in carbon sequestration to tackle climate change, and in a sustainable, Nature-positive future economy. The World Biodiversity Summit will be bringing together all the key stakeholders needed to mobilise bold investments in biodiversity, a sustainable future economy and society.
