2020: Aligning biodiversity with climate action

About

The year 2020, with the IUCN Congress in Marseille, the UN Ocean Conference in Lisbon and COP15 in Kunming, will play a key role in implementing the recommendations of the Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES) global assessment, defining national plans for the conservation and restoration of ecosystems, as well as determining the funding we need to protect nature at a global scale. Space programmes through the collection and sharing of data can help reduce climate risks while protecting biodiversity. Europe has a leadership role to play in ensuring its best tools are deployed at scale to prevent the collapse of the natural world.

Nature plays a critical role in offering ecosystem services and mitigating climate change. Despite this, our natural capital continues to shrink at an alarming rate and is on the edge to collapse. 2020 with the IUCN Congress in Marseille, the UN Ocean Conference in Lisbon and COP15 in Kunming will play a key role in implementing the recommendations of the Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES) global assessment. It will define national plans for the conservation and restoration of ecosystems, as well as determine the funding we need to protect nature at a global scale. With the development of its Biodiversity Strategy for 2030 and its moonshot mission for ‘Healthy Oceans’, Europe has a significant leadership role to play. It will have to agree on ways biodiversity and climate action are considered equally.

  • Will the latest reports’ recommendations be integrated into government and business biodiversity strategies?
  • How can Europe leadership in biodiversity lead to an international agreement on biodiversity by 2020?
  • How can the EU develop policy coherence to speak with one voice and ensure biodiversity and climate action receive the attention they deserve?
