Un Biodiversity Agreement

by on April 13th, 2021

The Conventions on Biological Diversity, also known as the Biodiversity Convention, are international treaties aimed at promoting biodiversity and ensuring sustainable use and equitable use of genetic resources. Work on the treaty concluded in Nairobi in May 1992 with the adoption of the Nairobi Final Act by the Nairobi conference adopting the agreed text of the Convention on Biological Diversity. The Convention was opened for the signing of the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (World Summit) in June 1992 and came into force in December of that year. The parties to the convention include some 190 countries (but not the United States) and the European Union. The Convention (adopted in 1982) recognized for the first time, under international law, that the preservation of biodiversity is “a common concern of humanity”. The agreement applies to all ecosystems, species and genetic resources. The Convention on Biological Diversity (CDB), known as the Biodiversity Agreement, is a multilateral treaty. The convention has three main objectives: the preservation of biodiversity (or biodiversity); Sustainable use of its components and the fair and equitable sharing of genetic resources. Its aim is to develop national strategies for the conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity, and it is often seen as a key document for sustainable development. CBD COP 15 will review the implementation and implementation of the CBD`s 2011-2020 Biodiversity Strategic Plan.

The final decision on the post-2020 global framework for biodiversity should also be taken at the same time as decisions on related issues, such as capacity building and resource mobilization. In October 2020, the UN Convention on Biological Diversity (CDB) will adopt a new global framework for biodiversity, including new global goals and targets. The 15th meeting of the parties will be held in Kunming, China, in the second quarter of 2021. [52] The aim is for the meeting to “adopt a global framework for biodiversity after 2020 as a springboard for the 2050 vision of Living in Harmony with Nature.” [53] Contracting parties are required to report on the national implementation of the convention, including the Aichi objectives, and the implementation of national biodiversity strategies.
