The fifteenth meeting of the Conference of the Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity will convene in two parts. This will allow time for continued negotiations on the post-2020 global biodiversity framework.
The opening meeting will address agenda items essential to the continued operations of the biodiversity convention and its two Protocols. It will also include a High-Level Segment to be held on 12 and 13 October and expected to produce a Kunming Declaration adding political momentum to the Framework negotiations.
The second and resumed part of the meetings are expected to address the remaining agenda items, including the finalization and adoption of the post 2020 global biodiversity framework.
