Biodiversity Talks: “More Divergence Than Convergence”

Biodiversity Talks: “More Divergence Than Convergence”

The UN Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) convened another set of week-long talks in Nairobi, which was the Open-Ended Working Group on the Post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework. There were a couple of clear wins, but a lot more contentious issues that were left unsettled, with one participant of the talks describing the proceedings as “groundhog day in Nairobi.” With negotiations on biodiversity loss being an issue too important to fail at, what were some of the key outcomes of this set of talks? We discuss some of the key outcomes with Lim Li Ching, a Senior Researcher with the Third World Network.
