Biodiversity and ecosystems
Identifying levers of change
About the programme
Biodiversity loss and ecosystem degradation are concrete and visible, and public opinion has been aware of it for decades. Policies to protect nature have been put in place. In December 2022, the international community adopted the Kunming-Montreal Global Biodiversity Framework under the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD). The European and French biodiversity strategies, which echo this global framework, are published in 2021 and 2023 respectively.
IDDRI is one of the main think tanks that was involved in these negotiations at the global level, contributing through activities of analysis, proposals, and animation and facilitation of discussions so that the governance framework allows for the necessary transformations of the economic sectors responsible for biodiversity loss, and that the global framework is strengthened in terms of accountability and implementation of commitments.
IDDRI wishes to contribute to ensuring an ambitious implementation of the Kunming-Montreal framework, which sets global goals and targets, by ensuring understanding and ownership of the established instruments and processes.
This will involve:
- to ensure the implementation of biodiversity goals and targets in the agenda of national administrations, through national biodiversity strategies and action plans and the integration of biodiversity objectives within sectoral policies,
- to ensure the implementation of biodiversity goals and targets in the agenda of intergovernmental organizations,
- to ensure the operationality of the transparency mechanism,
- to guarantee resource mobilization and alignment of financial resources, notably through reforms of the multilateral development banks and reflections on new financing tools (biodiversity credits, private sector involvement, reform of harmful incentives).
