Draft 1 of the post-2020 global biodiversity framework (GBF), being discussed in the perspective of COP15 to the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) includes, as its first Action Target, a clear mention to “integrated and biodiversity-inclusive spatial planning” as a way to tackle land-use and sea-use changes. Spatial planning includes a variety of approaches and initiatives, tools and instruments, from which lessons may be learnt for biodiversity governance.

IDDRI and Post-2020 Biodiversity Framework - EU support organized an online workshop between CBD negotiators and experts on 21-22 April 2021. The workshop explored how to reinforce the position of spatial planning in the post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework and ensure its effective implementation.

The Post-2020 Biodiversity Framework - EU Support Project is funded by the European Union and implemented by Expertise France.
