The Post-2020 Pavilion will be convened during the IUCN World Conservation Congress in Marseille, France from 07-15 January 2021. The Post-2020 Pavilion is a collaborative effort by an international partnership of many of the world’s largest environment and development NGOs, foundations, as well as several UN organisations and representatives of youth, Indigenous Peoples, Cities and Subnational governments and the business sector. The partners are united in their collective drive for transformative change to ensure that the GBF is sufficiently ambitious, scientifically grounded and mission-aligned.
In Marseille, the Post-2020 Pavilion will host a six-day programme of events, which will highlight the full spectrum of issues that are being deliberated in the official negotiations. These include the goals and targets, the drivers of loss, through to the means of implementation including financing, mainstreaming, implementation and governance. Another important issue that will be addressed is the correlation between nature loss and global pandemics.
The intended outcome of the Post-2020 Pavilion programme will be a series of powerful joined-up messages, which will be transmitted to the official CBD COP-15 negotiation process to ensure the highest possible level of ambition for nature and people. The draft programme for the Post-2020 Pavilion is set out on the following page.
