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.
Creating Impact Towards a Nature-Positive Future
World Biodiversity Network aligns its targets with the Global Biodiversity Framework and the Paris Agreement.
Through the network, our members can make decisions with clear viewpoints for their transition to nature-positive innovation and solutions. The public-private partnerships that our network offer strengthen these initiatives to prevent biodiversity-related risks to businesses.
Working with stakeholders around the world and industries, World Biodiversity Network’s activities are based around impact at three levels: Global, Sectoral and Organisational.
World Biodiversity Network facilitates the necessary cross-sector collaboration to spark investment in Nature-based Solutions and opportunities, tackling both biodiversity loss and climate change while generating economic opportunities.
The Network helps to reinforce the global regulations and frameworks, serving as pathways for restored land and water ecosystems to support mitigation and adaptation to climate change, as well as securing vital ecosystem services for future generations.
World Biodiversity Network works closely with key investment accelerators, development banks along with the existing coalitions and partnerships. Doing so serves to bolster the value of natural capital and green infrastructure as an asset class, preventing the risk of stranded assets and opening up the new cross-sector business opportunities with nature-positive outcomes.
The Network highlights the innovations and efforts needed for halting nature-related risks while identifying nature-positive opportunities across sectors. The Network will provide insights on the measurements, disclosures and reporting needed in developing a nature-positive economy and future in areas such as agriculture, forestry, food and water systems.
Through engaging key stakeholders from across the global biodiversity arena, World Biodiversity Network facilitates the mainstreaming of nature-positive policies at all levels of governance - from the local to the global, from the private and public sector.
The Network convenes the private and public sectors to create and strengthen solutions for the biodiversity crisis, improving the nature performance of organisations around the world - while promoting and discovering nature-positive opportunities.
With the conviction of the decisive power of cooperation and the certainty that tomorrow depends on the union of efforts and wills, we will continue to walk and work together. Always remembering something that this summit makes very clear: Sustainability, while a great challenge, is also, and above all, the greatest of opportunities.
