The High-level Event for Nature and People aims to demonstrate transformational actions to halt and reverse biodiversity loss. The event will offer ambitious countries and non-state actors an opportunity to showcase domestic and international actions, both on land and in the ocean, to ensure successful implementation of biodiversity agreements, including the Kunming-Montreal Global Biodiversity Framework (GBF) and the international legally binding instrument on the conservation and sustainable use of marine biological diversity of areas beyond national jurisdiction (BBNJ), also known as the high seas treaty.
The High Ambition Coalition for Nature and People (HAC), the Global Ocean Alliance (GOA), and the Leaders’ Pledge for Nature (LPN) are co-convening the high-level event on the sidelines of the High-level Week of the 78th session of the UN General Assembly (UNGA 78). The event’s co-hosts include Bhutan, Colombia, Costa Rica, the EU, France, Nigeria, the UK, and the US, in partnership with Bloomberg Philanthropies, Conservation International, The Nature Conservancy, the UN Development Programme (UNDP), and the UN Environment Programme (UNEP), among others.
The event is expected to highlight actions to implement the objectives of the LPN, HAC, and GOA, including actions to increase resource mobilization from all sources, repurpose harmful incentives and subsidies, and conserve and protect at least 30% of the planet’s land and ocean by 2030.
