COP15: a last chance to save biodiversity?

Event Reports

Global Europe

Saving the world’s biodiversity is a job for all of us. It is clear governments need to set aside differences to ensure effective international action, but the scale of the task requires a mobilisation of all stakeholders, bringing in business, civil society, farmers and citizens around the world.

That was among the key messages coming out of ‘COP15: a last chance to save biodiversity?’, a debate organised on 28 October 2021 as part of Friends of Europe’s Europe-China Dialogue.

Bringing in experts from Europe, Asia and beyond, the online event looked at what Europe and Asia can do together to protect and promote global biodiversity in the context of the United Nations Biodiversity Conference (COP15). Potentially the decade’s most important biodiversity debate, COP15 is due to resume next April in Kunming, China, after a first online session in October.
