Integrated land- and seascape approaches are effective instruments for mainstreaming biodiversity in the post-2020 era. They can help to address the major drivers of biodiversity loss, and offer cross-sectoral policy instruments to combine nature conservation, ecological restoration and sustainable land and water use at a larger scale.
With global health pandemics and climate change creating a world of unknowns, we still have the power to step up to restore the earth. Join thousands of biodiversity experts, scientists, policymakers, journalists, activists, private sector and Indigenous groups at the GLF Biodiversity Digital Conference to learn how the world’s leading organizations are uniting in the wake of COVID-19 to conserve and protect the world’s disappearing biodiversity—from seeds to sea turtles. Held under the theme ‘One World – One Health’, this two-day event will reach tens of millions of people, spotlight ecosystem restoration and contribute to the UN CBD’s Post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework, making 2020 the super year for nature and biodiversity.
Building on its success at GLF Bonn 2020, the GLF Biodiversity Digital Conference will bring people across time zones together in a digital space that can be accessed on every device. This format makes for a more inclusive forum, while cutting emissions as compared to in-person events.
