OECD Green Talks Live: Post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework: Enhancing measurability to track progress at global and national level
On 9 May (4:00 PM CEST/10:00 AM EDT) the OECD is holding a webinar on "Post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework: Enhancing measurability to track progress at the global and national level".
Human pressures are undermining the biodiversity that underpins all life on land and below water. Ecosystem services delivered by biodiversity, such as crop pollination, water purification, flood protection and carbon sequestration, are vital to human well-being. Despite these benefits, global biodiversity is on the decline. The post-2020 global biodiversity framework, to be agreed upon at CBD COP15 in Kunming, China in 2020, presents a crucial opportunity to put in place more specific and measurable targets and to catalyse action to halt and reverse biodiversity loss.
