GLF Biodiversity Digital Conference: One World - One Health
Integrated land- and seascape approaches are effective instruments for mainstreaming biodiversity in the post-2020 era. They can help to address the major drivers of biodiversity loss, and offer cross-sectoral policy instruments to combine nature conservation, ecological restoration and sustainable land and water use at a larger scale.READ CONCEPT NOTE
PEOPLE HAVE ATTENDED GLF CONFERENCES
With global health pandemics and climate change creating a world of unknowns, we still have the power to step up to restore the earth. Join thousands of biodiversity experts, scientists, policymakers, journalists, activists, private sector and Indigenous groups at the GLF Biodiversity Digital Conference to learn how the world’s leading organizations are uniting in the wake of COVID-19 to conserve and protect the world’s disappearing biodiversity—from seeds to sea turtles. Held under the theme ‘One World – One Health’, this two-day event will reach tens of millions of people, spotlight ecosystem restoration and contribute to the UN CBD’s Post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework, making 2020 the super year for nature and biodiversity.

WHY SHOULD YOU JOIN?
The COVID-19 crisis has caused the UN CBD to postpone the negotiations for its post-2020 global biodiversity framework. Yet, now is the time that the global community must step up and set a pathway for restoring the earth. Aligning with CBD’s envisioned pathways to transformative change and the 2020-2030 UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration, the Global Landscapes Forum (GLF) advocates for a reorientation of our economic system, to reconcile the multiple interests, values and forms of resource use.
