Join us for the second webinar of this series which will showcase how national ecosystem assessments can support the implementation of the Kunming-Montreal Biodiversity package. This presentation will highlight the assessments’ human rights approach and focus on how two of our country partners, Thailand and Colombia, plan to use their national ecosystem assessments to implement the new Framework. 

In December 2022, the15th Conference of the Parties of the Convention on Biological Diversity reached a historic agreement on a package of decisions to advance the implementation of the Convention. The package features a set of global goals and targets, that alongside a series of mechanisms that will enable, and support implementation are aimed at halting and reversing biodiversity loss by 2030 and making significant progress in implementing the Convention’s objectives. The decisions adopted at the Conference of the Parties provide governments, the private sector and other relevant stakeholders with a landmark agreement for biodiversity-related decision-making. As such, this webinar series hosted by the Sub-Global Assessment Network (SGAN) at UNEP-WCMC aims to provide information on the new Kunming-Montreal Biodiversity Package and showcase how the National Ecosystem Assessment Initiative can support its implementation.  

This webinar will: 

  • Showcase how national ecosystem assessment can support the implementation of the Kunming-Montreal Biodiversity Framework. 
  • Provide an opportunity for countries to highlight their plans for utilising their national ecosystem assessment in the implementation of the Kunming-Montreal Biodiversity package.
