About the UN Biodiversity Conference
On 17 – 29 November 2018 the United Nations will call on decision-makers from more than 190 countries to participate in the UN Biodiversity Conference that includes the fourteenth meeting of the Conference of the Parties (COP 14). Governments will work to step up efforts to halt the biodiversity loss and protect the ecosystems that support food and water security and health for billions of people.
At COP 14, Parties to the Convention will discuss efforts needed to achieve the Aichi Biodiversity Targets as well as lay the groundwork for the process of developing the successor of the current Global Strategic Plan for Biodiversity 2011-2020. COP 14 will also include an innovative discussion on mainstreaming biodiversity into five core sectors of the economy – infrastructure, mining, energy and gas, manufacturing, and health.
Biodiversity and climate change will also be discussed. The conference will of course also look at the important question of protected areas both on land and sea, and other measures for enhanced conservation and management of biodiversity. Delegates will continue long-standing discussions on ecologically or biologically significant marine areas. (Source)
