Nine years after the Nagoya global conference on biodiversity in 2010, the international community has come to the conclusion that it failed: scientifical reports show that deterioration of biodiversity increases while what threatens it doesn’t drop, quit the opposite. Almost none of Aichi objectives will be achieved by 2020. Why? Is the preparatory framework set during COP14 in Egypt really up to the challenges of such a negociation? How can we ensure success of future negotiations in Bejing? What lessons can we draw from the Paris Agreements on Climate?
Those questions were all submitted to a high-level panel of experts during the “Rendez-vous de l’Expertise”.
Several high-level speakers participated:
- Xing Qu, UNESCO Deputy Director General
- Laurence Tubiana, CEO of European Climate Foundation
- Stefen Leiner, Head of Unit Biodiversity, DG-Environment, European Commission
- Yann Wehrling, French ambassador for the environment
- Pascal Canfin, CEO of WWF France
- Jérémie Pellet, Chief Executive Officer of Expertise France
- Bertrand Bonhomme, Sustainable Development Vice President at Michelin
- Gilles Kleitz, Director of the Ecological Transition and Natural Resources Department at AFD
- Didier Babin, Team leader of Post 2020 Biodiversity Framework – EU Support project
« For Beijing, we need a real revolution on how we perceive biodiversity.” Laurence Tubiana, ambassador for negotiations on climate COP21 in 2015, director of European Climate Foundation
