Abstract

The Post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework presents a window of opportunity to increase its ambition level and for improving the effectiveness of global biodiversity governance via the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD). Improving the performance of the CBD is much needed as countries have largely have failed to achieve the goals they have agreed within the CBD. Stronger involvement of non-state and sub-national actors (e.g. cities, regions, indigenous peoples and local communities, companies, and civil society organisations) to commit and contribute to biodiversity conservation could be a feasible and impactful way forward.
