Seizing the landscape opportunity to catalyse transformative biodiversity governance

Plenaries, sessions and launchpads will be available in three languages: English, Spanish and French.

The new CBD Post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework (GBF) will build on a theory of change aiming for transformative shifts and involving the whole of society. Landscape-based initiatives and approaches across the globe have evidenced the potential contribution of non-state actors in achieving global goals. Landscape governance arrangements are complementary to existing CBD approaches, and align with the GBF objectives. This session will highlight and discuss the role of landscape approaches and arrangements undertaken by non-state actors to support the GBF, discuss how policies could support this and illustrate the potential for area-based non-state actor GBF commitments and verification.
