WCC Post-2020 Pavilion: Mainstreaming Impacts and Dependencies in the Post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework

GO BACK
Deepening understanding of the challenges and opportunities for mainstreaming nature into business and finance.

The postponement of the IUCN World Conservation Congress and along with it, the Post-2020 Pavilion, has created an opportunity for the Pavilion Partnership to organise two series of Virtual Biodiversity Dialogues, with the first one convened between 17 June and 21 July 2020, and the second one to be convened in September-October 2020. The Virtual Biodiversity Dialogues Series will convene leading biodiversity and development experts from around the world to deepen collective thinking and to generate new insights and powerful messages for elevating ambition in the ongoing Post-2020 global biodiversity framework negotiations. The Virtual Biodiversity Dialogues Series will also lay the groundwork for developing the substantive events that they will convene at the Congress in 2021.

Civil Society Organizations, Mainstreaming, Transformative change.

On July 8th, the Post-2020 Pavilion hosted a public virtual event on “Mainstreaming Impacts and Dependencies in the Post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework”.

This session showcased how companies and financial institutions are mainstreaming concerns related to nature and human well-being into the way they do business.

A key challenge of the Post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework is to mainstream biodiversity concerns in to key economic sectors.

This session deepened understanding of the challenges and opportunities for mainstreaming nature into business and finance, with a focus on financial accounting and spatial finance.

  • Oliver Hillel, Programme Officer, CBD Secretariat
  • Peter White, Chief Opperating Officer, WBCSD
  • Eve Ayutaire, Government of Uganda

The Post-2020 Pavilion is an international partnership that is organizing a six-day programme of substantive sessions at the IUCN World Conservation Congress 2021, all related to key issues in the Post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework (GBF) negotiations. The Pavilion Partners are united in their collective drive for transformative change to ensure that the GBF is sufficiently ambitious, scientifically grounded and mission-aligned. In preparation of the Post-2020 Pavilion, the Virtual Biodiversity Dialogue Series are being convened with Post-2020 Pavilion Partners and other experts in June-July, and then again September-October.

The key objectives of the Biodiversity Dialogues are to deepen collective thinking, prepare for the actual Post-2020 Pavilion events, and generate powerful messages for the UNGA Biodiversity Summit.
