Members of the GPFLR will reunite this week to participate in the workshop “Developing a Roadmap for the Kunming-Montreal Global Biodiversity Framework Target 2”, an event hosted by FAO in collaboration with the Convention on Biological Diversity. The workshop occurs through November 24th at FAO headquarters in Rome, Italy. More than one hundred experts will join the discussion covering a range of topics such as progress and alignment between the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration and Kunming-Montreal Global Biodiversity Framework (GBF), unpacking Target 2’s dimensions, including transparent monitoring, large-scale restoration commitments, stakeholder inclusion, capacity needs, and financing.
In this workshop, participants will develop a roadmap to the effective implementation of GBF’s Target 2 — which aims to effectively restore at least 30% of the degraded terrestrial, coastal and marine ecosystem areas by 2030. Members of the GPFLR will share their expertise and experiences from science, policy, and practice as pathways for achieving global goals, providing evidence of the importance and urgency of advancing ecosystem restoration action.
Kunming-Montreal Global Biodiversity
The world currently has a high biodiversity loss, which threatens the survival of more than one million species and directly impacts human life. The Kunming-Montreal Global Biodiversity (GBF) was adopted in the 15th Conference of the Parties to the UN Convention on Biological Diversity in 2022 setting up global targets to be achieved by 2030 to bend the curve of biodiversity loss.
