IUCN Director General’s statement for the UN Biodiversity Conference

Biodiversity continues to decline at unprecedented rates. The resulting global loss of life and livelihoods is an existential emergency. Last month, IUCN’s 1,500 Members discussed the post-2020 global biodiversity framework at the IUCN World Conservation Congress in Marseille, France. We therefore arrive at today’s UN Biodiversity Conference empowered by our state, civil society, and indigenous peoples Members. The Union has strongly reaffirmed that the framework must be ‘fit for purpose’, through adopting ambitious goals and targets to address the loss of nature together with the linked challenges of climate change, and land degradation.
