The UK’s objective for 15th meeting of the Conference of the Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity is to agree a framework that spurs action and the transformative changes needed for halting and reversing global biodiversity loss.

We will promote ambitious and practical targets, including targets to enhance ecosystem resilience and species recovery, supported by strengthened implementation mechanisms that are consummate with the scale of the challenge.
