The next 14-18 months is a critical time for conservation.
The new report from the United Nations Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES) tells us that nature is declining at rates unprecedented in human history, and although it’s not too late to make a difference, we must make transformational change.
In 14 months the World Conservation Congress in Marseilles will be a moment for conservationists from around the world to send a signal to government leaders on the need for serious commitment and action to stop the loss. In 18 months (October, 2020) the Convention on Biological Diversity meetings will be in Kunming, Guizhou, China, where new targets to 2030 will be set and commitments made.
To help plan the places and times where you can provide input to these events to help shape future international conservation action, here is a schedule of events between now and 2021 for your use.
