High Level Welcome and Keynotes

The Summit's opening remarks set a clear trajectory for the event, drawing from political, financial and scientific frameworks to highlight nature's integral role in the Paris Agreement and the Global Biodiversity Framework. The opening remarks charted the course for the needed ambition and actions, emphasising the interlinkage between climate change and loss of biodiversity and providing a foundation for the action-oriented discussions to follow.
