At the United Nations Conference on Biological Diversity in China on Wednesday, nearly 200 countries adopted the Kunming Declaration, which bore the name of the city where the conference was held, German news agency DPA reported.
The talks, also taking place online, focus on crafting a new global framework to protect biodiversity, modeled on the 2015 Paris Agreement to tackle the climate crisis.
The declaration notes that many countries are calling for 30% of the world’s terrestrial and marine areas to be placed under protection by 2030. It says there is “grave concern” about biodiversity loss, land degradation, desertification, damage to the marine environment and pollution, all of which “pose an existential threat to our society.” Our culture, our prosperity and our planet.”
This week’s meeting, known as “COP15-” (the 15th Meeting of the Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity), is set to follow more detailed negotiations in Switzerland in January, before adopting a final strategy at a personal meeting in Kunming from April 25. to May 8th.
