GLF Kunming 2020: Securing Biodiverse Landscapes and Ecosystems
Recent reports reveal that humanities actions on land in the past 40 years have produced the largest negative impact on biodiversity in land-based and freshwater ecosystems. Human activity in seascapes are also rapidly altering marine ecosystems and destroying life in the world’s oceans. It’s time to restore an ecological balance.
In October 2020, GLF will host a one-day event within the UN Biodiversity Conference (CBD COP15) in Kunming, China. As the CBD prepares for its Post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework the world must step forward and set a pathway for restoring the earth. Nature based solutions are the only way to arrive at CBD’s vision of ‘Living in Harmony with Nature by 2050’ and can give us a fighting chance to achieve the goals for the Paris climate agreement and the Sustainable Development Goals by 2030.

WHY SHOULD YOU JOIN?
Biodiversity is everything. It is the environment in which we live, the food that we eat, and the air that we breathe the awe and beauty that inspires art and innovation. It is the most fundamental part of life itself -and extends into the global economy and business. The planet is on the brink of a mass extinction. Rapid biodiversity loss, from vanishing mammals to insects and seed species, are threatening the ecological balance and systems which underpin life on earth.
This is your chance to meet with people of all backgrounds who are working on the ground, to swap ideas and gain insights into successful, integrated landscape restoration projects. Network with experts and peers using our digital platform.
Ask the questions you have been saving; chances are good that at this event, you’ll get connected with the people who can give you answers – on biodiverse landscapes, nature-based solutions and ecosystem restoration.
