Adopting a transformative change approach to the post-2020 global biodiversity framework

The Post 20202 Biodiversity Framework.EU support will hold a thematic session on transformative change in the post 2020 global biodiversity framework at the EU Pavilion of the IUCN World Conservation Congress on September 5th from 4 to 5 PM CEST under a hybrid format – online and in person in Marseille.

Transformative change.

The session will present the main interest, challenges and opportunities related to adopting a “transformative change” approach to the post-2020 global biodiversity framework and showcase with concrete examples the EU’s role and leadership in driving transformation throughout sectors, stakeholders and in the COP15 negotiation process.

Under the moderation of Julie Delcroix, Policy Officer at the European Commission DG R&T, panelists will show pathways to concrete windows of action for an effectively transformative CBD COP15; develop ownership and use the concept of transformative change to enhance global biodiversity governance.

The session will start off with an expert presentation on transformative change, its main concepts and an analysis of the transformative elements and gaps in the current CBD negotiations, by Jiska Van Dijsk and Harriet Bulkeley. It will be followed by a panel discussion featuring EU Member States on priorities for transformative action, and stakeholders’ (Subnational and Local Governments, youth, private sector) on contributions and expectations for an inclusive and transformative post-2020 GBF.

The IUCN World Conservation Congress comes just months before CBD adopts this framework. As the largest marketplace of conservation expertise and the only international forum on biodiversity with outcomes decided by governments, civil society and indigenous peoples’ together, the IUCN Congress is a unique opportunity to shape the ambition and galvanize the necessary action at levels commensurate with the challenge we all face.
