The timeline outlines key events between June 2017 and October 2020 that will contribute to the deliberations on a post-2020 global biodiversity framework.

The CBD Strategic Plan for the period 2011-2020 includes 20 Aichi Biodiversity Targets (Aichi Targets), elements of which were incorporated into the targets under SDG 15 (life on land), along with 2020 deadlines for achievement.

November 2018: The UN Environment World Conservation Monitoring Centre (UNEP-WCMC) and the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) have prepared a timeline outlining key events between June 2017 and October 2020 that will contribute to the deliberations on a post-2020 global biodiversity framework.

At the tenth meeting of the Conference of the Parties (COP 10) to the CBD, which convened Nagoya, Japan, delegates adopted the CBD Strategic Plan for the period 2011-2020, including strategic goals and targets aiming to inspire broad-based action by Parties and stakeholders. The 20 Aichi Biodiversity Targets (Aichi Targets) included in the Strategic Plan are organized under five Strategic Goals. Elements from the Aichi Targets were subsequently incorporated into the targets under SDG 15 (life on land), and included 2020 deadlines for achievement. At its meeting in 2020, the CBD COP is expected to update the Convention’s strategic plan in the context of the 2050 Vision of the Strategic Plan for Biodiversity 2011-2020 and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

The ‘2020 Biodiversity Strategic Planning Timeline’ is an interactive timeline with information on the events leading up to the adoption of a post-2020 global biodiversity framework, which is expected to be agreed at CBD COP 15, in October 2020 in China.
