Biodiversity and Great Green Wall Day | Session 1
At a time when biodiversity losses are occurring at an unprecedented rate, accelerated, among other things, by the effects of climate change, the COP 15 on biodiversity in December 2022 will be a crucial step. The determination of an appropriate governance framework is at stake, as well as the definition of objectives, appropriate financing, and efficient measurement and reporting tools.
COP 27, which will take place beforehand, must take into account these issues and the different interactions – now proven – between biodiversity and climate. In the light of these upcoming events, how can we link these different themes and ensure that they find appropriate responses commensurate with the urgency?
