About the Post-2020 Partnership

The Post-2020 Partnership, was formed as a collaborative effort of many of the world’s largest environment and development NGOs, foundations, as well as several UN organisations and representatives of youth, Indigenous Peoples, and the business sector. Our mission is to unite our diverse membership in joint action to drive high ambition in the Post-2020 GBF negotiations. Our vision is transformative change towards an equitable, nature-positive and carbon-neutral world for all people and the planet. 

With the two postponements of the Congress, the Post-2020 Partnership has used the delay periods to convene a wide range of activities that have been designed to uphold our mission and to lay the groundwork for a high-impact Pavilion programme whose outcomes will positively influence the CBD COP-15 negotiations.

About our Post‑2020 Partnership Pavilion

4-9 September 2021

The Post-2020 Partnership is hosting a Pavilion at the IUCN World Conservation Congress in Marseille. Our six day programme is designed to address the critical issues in the negotiations for the Global Biodiversity Framework (GBF) and to identify the gaps that must be filled before leaders adopt the GBF at CBD COP-15.

The Post-2020 Partnership Pavilion will identify the key political messages about the challenges and opportunities for driving high ambition in the GBF negotiations to shift towards an equitable, nature-positive and carbon-neutral future for all.

By drawing on the unique expertise of our diverse Partnership and our comprehensive line-up of high-level speakers and world-renowned experts, we will generate deeper analysis and solutions to equip CBD negotiators and political leaders to drive the highest level ambition possible.

See you in Marseille!

OUR PAST WORK

Virtual Biodiversity Dialogues 2020

The postponement of the Congress, and along with it, the Post-2020 Partnership Pavilion, created an opportunity for the Partnership to organise the Virtual Biodiversity Dialogues, which were convened between 17 June and 20 July 2020.

The Virtual Biodiversity Dialogues brought together leading biodiversity and development experts from around the world to deepen collective thinking and to generate new insights and powerful messages for elevating ambition in the ongoing Post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework negotiations.

These virtual sessions provided an opportunity for partners to lay the groundwork for their face-to-face formal sessions that will be convened at the World Conservation Congress in Marseille 2021. Another important opportunity seized by the virtual sessions was to generate powerful high-level messages to the UNGA Biodiversity Summit in September 2020 and onwards to the various CBD negotiation sessions in the fall of 2020.

The Virtual Biodiversity Dialogues were also designed to provide substantive input to the New Deal for Nature and People campaign.

Call to Action

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.
