The Kunming-Montreal Global Biodiversity Framework (GBF) seeks to promote the protection and sustainable use of the world’s living resources. Building on the earlier Strategic Plan for Biodiversity 2011-2020, the role of the GBF is to guide international cooperation on achieving the 2050 vision of ‘living in harmony with nature’. This vision was agreed by the Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) and is outlined in CBD decision 10/2. The GBF was adopted at the 2022 United Nations Biodiversity Conference (COP15).
The EMG Issue Management Group (IMG) on Biodiversity was established in 2021 to continue and expand upon the work of the now-concluded EMG Consultative Process on Biodiversity. Co-chaired by UNDP, UNEP and UNESCO, the IMG’s mandate is to prepare the ground for UN-system collaboration on the GBF through the UN Common Approach to Biodiversity.
EMG organized a high-level dialogue on implementing the Common Approach on Biodiversity and the Post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework. The event took place at the CBD COP15 on 15 December, from 16:30 to 18:00 EST.
