The expansion of the human footprint across both the terrestrial and marine realms is causing significant declines in the amount of intact ecosystem coverage on land and in the ocean. Our current trajectory is leading us toward even greater rates of species extinction, and the degradation of the natural ecosystems that underpin the health of our planet and our very well-being.

The CBD currently lacks a single, measurable global goal or target for biodiversity conservation that provides both a messaging tool and a way to hold ourselves accountable for the retention of nature -- including functioning, intact ecosystems, the biodiversity they support, and the services they provide to human wellbeing. This side event will discuss a potential structure for such a global goal, with a particular focus on relevant sub-targets that prioritize the need to secure ecosystems with a high degree of ecosystem intactness, which in turn addresses biodiversity conservation, ecosystem quality and resilience, and services provided for human wellbeing.

Light refreshments will be provided.
