The key role of subnational and local governments in the
Global Biodiversity Framework implementation

Join us at ICLEI’s Cities Biodiversity Center webinar series, to explore the key role of subnational and local governments in the implementation of the Global Biodiversity Framework (GBF).

Considering the role of subnational and local governments was a “game changer” at COP15 in Montreal in December 2022, it is important to keep momentum while focusing on strategies for the implementation of the GBF.

ICLEI Cities Biodiversity Centre (CBC), will host and lead a series of six webinars, with the support from partners: Committee of the Regions, International Union for Conservation of Nature, Secretariat of the Convention on Biological Diversity, United Nations Environment Programme, and Regions4, with the purpose of opening a space for knowledge building and sharing on biodiversity issues towards COP16 in Cali, Colombia in 2024, and to ultimately to reach the 2030 targets and 2050 goals.

Each online session will include inspiring and informative presentations and panel discussions from experts and political leaders. The webinars allow sharing tools, resources and/or best practices.
