Biodiversity Convention COP15 resolution
ENVI Members are set to vote on 3 December 2019 on the resolution on the Biodiversity Convention's COP15, which will take place in Kunming, China in October 2020 and is expected to update the Convention's strategic plan and adopt a post-2020 global biodiversity framework.
The draft resolution addresses a number of key issues in view of the negotiations ahead of the COP15 and notably the need for a global legally binding agreement to protect global biodiversity, to stop its current decline, and to restore all aspects of biodiversity. In addition, the resolution calls for ambitious legally binding targets, detailed timelines, clear performance indicators, tracking instruments and peer review/reporting mechanisms to ensure full transparency and accountability for Parties and the overall effectiveness of the next global Biodiversity Strategy Plan. Similarly at EU level, the resolution calls for an ambitious and inclusive Biodiversity Strategy for 2030 that sets legally binding targets for the EU and its Member States.
Once adopted in ENVI, the draft resolution is foreseen for adoption by the plenary in January 2020.
