In this publication, take stock of the knowledge and know-how induced by the BIODEV2030 project’s first step, which is to assess the main threats to biodiversity and provide elements to address the following specific questions: how were main threats to biodiversity identified and ranked and associated sectors selected in each country?

This report explores how business interests have tried to shape the recent course of the work of the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) and, in many cases, have succeeded in doing so. It focuses specifically on the development of the Post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework (GBF).

To reverse the persistent trend of biodiversity loss to recovery of nature, nature policy needs to be combined with policies on climate mitigation, and food and energy systems must be reformed. This is one of the conclusions in the report Exploring nature-positive pathways.

The Conference of the Parties (COP) to the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) will adopt, at its 15th meeting (COP-15), a framework that will guide the work on biodiversity at the global level for the period between now and 2030, towards the 2050 biodiversity vision of a world where biodiversity is valued, conserved, sustainably used and,

The Strategic Plan for Biodiversity (2011–2020), formally adopted by COP in 2010 in Aichi, Japan provided an overarching global framework on biodiversity whose vision is to value, restore, and conserve biodiversity for the benefit of all people by 2050.

This report is the second output of the joint NGFS-INSPIRE Study Group on Biodiversity and Financial Stability. The group was established to help central banks and financial supervisors fulfil their mandates in the face of financial risks stemming from biodiversity loss.

Along with defining the measures needed to achieve ecosystem-based adaptation (EbA), solid governance components are imperative to make it effective. Such governance must be flexible, participatory, multidimensional and include ecosystem-based approaches (maintain ecosystem structure and function to guarantee human well-being).

As United Nations biodiversity negotiations begin next week, a new report commissioned by WWF reveals that 39 million jobs could be created if governments reallocated just one year’s worth of subsidies that harm biodiversity to a nature-positive stimulus instead.

Biodiversity is declining faster than at any other period in human history. Direct drivers of the decline include changes in land and sea use, over-exploitation of organisms, climate change, pollution and invasive alien species. These drivers are themselves influenced by demographic, macroeconomic and political factors.

As negotiations continue on biodiversity action for the next decade, now is the critical moment to seize the opportunity for embedding a landscape perspective throughout the new UN Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework (GBF).
