A new key biodiversity platform for cross sectoral collaboration
For its inaugural launch, World Biodiversity Summit will help define what world leaders and the private sector in biodiversity and climate action need to do in the medium and long term to achieve sustainable development and hinder further biodiversity loss, focusing on partnerships and investment mechanisms as levers of progress. World Biodiversity Summit is a platform for responding to accelerating biodiversity loss, by using the Paris Agreement as a framework to learn from, promoting relevant solutions, innovations, and leadership networks, strengthening nature restoration and conservation. Nature-based solutions will be highlighted, from specificecosystems to global possibilities.

Now that the Global Biodiversity Framework has been finalised, it is time for implementation. World Biodiversity Network plans engagement activities for our members and partners throughout the year, guiding their organisations in the correct achievement of the biodiversity targets.
Our activities serve our members and partners in their aims to identify and reduce biodiversity-related risks to their businesses and to society. Members will be able to work together for their goal of contributing to a nature-positive future through insights from the examples of sustainable business practices shared within the network.
Partnerships & Coalitions
At the heart of all our activities is our community. With our members and partners, we identify key coalitions, partnerships and initiatives that provide strategic solutions for and further action towards the green economy. The Network enables stakeholders to build alliances and develop ambition loops for nature innovation, aimed at addressing key global challenges linked to the climate and biodiversity crisis.
Based on their profiles and strategies, we match stakeholders and promote partnerships through our network, summits and other communications platforms. We draw on the World Climate Foundation’s wealth of experience - our Climate Investment Coalition, for example, was able to generate US$130 billion commitment to be invested in climate before 2030.
During our roadmap of activities, we engage our members and partners across government, business, finance, international organisations and alliances in creative peer-group learning and structured networking opportunities to grow and connect.
Through topic-focused workshops, digital meetings, webinars, thematic roundtables and executive dinners we support our network to debate and access wide-ranging thought leadership and expertise throughout the year.
World Biodiversity Network will gather during the most important climate and biodiversity events from Davos to Dubai. Positioned to be the main annual biodiversity summit, alongside Climate Week NYC and the 78th UNGA, World Biodiversity Summit will take place as the main event in the 2023 roadmap.
World Biodiversity Summit bridges biodiversity and climate by utilising public-private sector ambition loops to achieve the policies, innovations and investments required to reach a nature-positive future. The Summit convenes high-level experts and leaders in panel discussions, fireside chats, and keynote speeches to address some of the most pressing biodiversity challenges.
By convening leaders from governments, businesses, international organisations, academia and civil society, the World Biodiversity Summit offers a dedicated and much-needed forum to increase promising solutions through cross-sectoral and cross-border collaboration. As you participate, ladies and gentlemen, in this
Summit and through the complementary World Biodiversity Network,
I can only encourage you to be bold with your ambitions and to be
clear about the steps you need to take to achieve them.
