Nairobi Talks to Finalise Biodiversity Framework Ahead of Relocated COP15

This week sees government representatives from around the world gather in Nairobi in a bid to finalise a global biodiversity framework ahead of the United Nations COP15 conference later this year where it is set to be formally adopted. The draft framework has already been discussed in Geneva in March where, after more than two years of virtual discussions, progress was reported to be slow. This prompted the Nairobi meeting, at which there will be six days to tie up loose ends. The “crunch talks” must place the world on course for a Paris-style agreement for nature, says the World Wildlife Fund. The framework covers a wide range of challenges, including biodiversity loss, soil degradation, oil pollution, forest depletion and more. COP15, already delayed several times due to the pandemic, is set to be held in Montreal in December instead of Kunming. The move came after an agreement with the Chinese government, in order to avoid a further postponement.
