The heads of the partner organisations of the Post-2020 Partnership have signed a Call to Action aimed at world leaders.
With the first delay of the Congress, the intervening months were used to organise a series of ten webinars that addressed key issues within the Post-2020 GBF negotiations. The key output of the webinars was the “Outcome Document”, which evolved into the Post-2020 Partnership Pavilion Call to Action and was signed by 15 CEOs from our partner organisations. It was launched jointly with several other civil society calls to action on 18 September 2020, in advance of the United Nations General Assembly and Summit on Biodiversity.
The Call to Action was the product of an interactive drafting process with all of the Pavilion’s partners. The core message was the importance of shifting towards an equitable, nature-positive and carbon-neutral world for all. This phrase provides a unique framing of the interlinkages that must be addressed in both the GBF and UNFCCC COP processes, and which have since gained considerable currency in international environmental policy circles.
