Supporting the design and first implementation steps of the new global framework for biological diversity

As of: September 2020

Objective and activities

To stop the ongoing decline of biodiversity and to implement the recommendations of the IPBES report decisive action both at national and international levels is required. The international community is preparing the new global framework for biodiversity after 2020. It will be adopted at the 15th Conference of the Parties to the CBD in Kunming, China. The objective of the project is to support key actors in partner countries in the design of the new global framework for biodiversity and during the first steps of its implementation. To this end, it supports events on the road to the CBD COP15, promotes integrated approaches to biodiversity conservation and climate change, identifies funding instruments for the implementation of the global framework, particularly in the context of resource mobilization and raises public awareness for the significance of biodiversity. The project is part of the IKI Corona Response Package.

State of implementation/results

  • As part of the Corona Response Package, the project will develop a conceptual approach in the nexus “biodiversity-climate-health” in cooperation with selected actors and, in the sense of horizontal integration, support projects that provide policy advice on intergrating Green Recovery in biodiversity.
  • Support with regards to the preparations for CBD COP 15, e.g. by analyzing concepts that are relevant to the negotiations and by researching country positions on various negotiation elements.
  • The project analyzes integrated approaches and synergies between biodiversity conservation and climate change in selected partner countries. Both policy level (NDC/NBSAP) and the implementation of nature-based solutions (NbS) play an important role. A further study for the improvement of selected funding instruments is being developed and will focus on the effective implementation of the new Global Biodiversity Framework.
  • Development of a communication strategy on global biodiversity issues, the new global biodiversity framework and the implantation of the CBD. This includes concrete public relations activities during various international events (e.g. International Day of Biodiversity 2020, World Environment Day 2020), international discussion rounds as well as social media presentations, which are intended to sensitize the public to the conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity.
