The Strategic Plan for Biodiversity 2011-2020 – and its associated 20 Aichi Biodiversity Targets – has been the largest ever intergovernmental plan for saving nature and nature’s benefits on land and sea.
While continuing to focus on achieving Aichi targets, the international community will need to contribute to processes that will lead to adoption of a post-2020 biodiversity strategy. The CCI cluster has a unique opportunity to contribute to this debate through its remarkable strengths in biological, social and political conservation science, broad experience of real world conservation, and involvement in relevant international agreements and other intergovernmental process.
The CCI Collaborative Fund project 'CCI engagement in defining the post-2020 biodiversity agenda' convened an Expert meeting 10-12 April 2018, which bought together many key scientists, leading thinkers and communicators to review science perspectives and policy options for the post-2020 biodiversity strategy.
