The global Strategic Plan for Biodiversity, with the Aichi Targets, will expire in 2020. COP 15, in Beijing, will be a landmark moment in the history of international biodiversity governance. As parties to the CBD are gathering at COP 14, and as has been noticeable in discussions in the last year, parallels are often made between the stakes of COP 15 for the CBD and of COP 21 for the UNFCCC. On-going discussions, and even some proposals for the post-2020, implicitly or explicitly take the Paris Agreement, or some of its elements, as examples to emulate in the CBD arena.

 

This side event will address some of the key lessons that can be learned from COP 21, from its preparation to the adoption of the Paris Agreement. It will discuss:

  • The different timelines and state of discussions in both conventions before their major respective deadlines.
  • The functions of an “action agenda”in the climate arena, gathering state and non-state actors, and what would be forseeable for biodiversity.
  • The features of the Paris Agreement (NDCs, ratchet mechanism, MRV, etc.) that are seen by some as examples to follow for the CBD.
  • The formal and implementation links of the UNFCCC and the CBD up to 2030.

Relaunching the international ambition for biodiversity: A three-dimensional vision for the future of the Convention on Biological Diversity


In Beijing at the end of 2020, the international community will see how the objectives it set itself in 2010 have not been achieved, and will have to find the terms for an agreement that is commensurate with the challenges. This Issue Brief clarifies the challenges that must be faced at this event by focusing on three issues: - the regime of objectives and targets; - the mechanism of the convention; - and other legal initiatives or instruments that can be envisaged and linked with the CBD. This analysis is complementary to another Issue Brief, which details the milestones and steps along the pathway towards the end of 2020.
