The Tour du Valat will be present at the Fifteenth meeting of the Conference of the Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity (COP 15) to support the adoption of an ambitious post-2020 global biodiversity framework that will finally halt biodiversity loss.
The 15th Conference of the Parties (COP15) to the United Nations Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) will bring together governments from around the world under the Chinese presidency from December 7 to 19, 2022, in Montreal, Canada, headquarters of the CBD Secretariat. On this occasion, the Global Biodiversity Framework for the post-2020 period, a reference document for biodiversity conservation at the global level, is expected to be adopted.
On the occasion of the Ramsar COP14 on wetlands (5-13 November), the COP27 on climate (6-18 November), the COP19 on species trade (14-25 November) and finally the COP15 on biodiversity, the Ramsar Association France, the French Committee of the IUCN and the Tour du Valat have published the appeal “Wetlands are our “life insurance” against the combined climate and biodiversity crises”, in order to give a new impulse to wetlands, major providers of nature-based solutions to the major societal challenges we face, including climate change.
