We’re building momentum towards achieving the vision of living in harmony with nature.
The launch of the Global Biodiversity Outlook (GBO) 5 in 2020, the flagship publication of the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD), provided a global summary of progress on promoting biodiversity, the evidence of the growing biodiversity crisis and the urgent need for action. The report presents transition pathways to reach new targets by 2030 to significantly shift away from ‘business as usual’ across a broad range of human activities by a set of ambitious, interlinked and essential changes to reach sustainability. The pathways are as follows: 1) land and forests; 2) freshwater; 3) fisheries and oceans; 4) sustainable agriculture; 5) food systems; 6) cities and infrastructure; 7) climate action; and 8) one health.
The Sharm El-Sheikh to Kunming Action Agenda for Nature and People invites positive action in support of nature in line with the Global Biodiversity Framework to be adopted in 2021. As commitments come in, they are displayed below to inspire others and create a groundswell of action for nature. The commitments are categories in a similar manner as the transition pathways to inspire further actions from non-state actors.
