The Paris Agreement goals cannot be achieved without nature. As we halve emissions by 2030, we must also reverse the dramatic biodiversity loss across the world. COP27 is a critical COP for nature as it precedes the delivery of the Global Biodiversity Framework (CBD) to be developed under the Convention of Biological Diversity at COP15 in Montreal, Canada.
The Biodiversity Day at COP27, on 16th of November, will address several aspects of nature and ecosystem-based solutions, including but not limited to, impacts of climate change on biodiversity and the means to mobilize global actions, impacts of climate change on oceans, endangered species, coral reefs and sustainability of protected areas to deliver ecosystem services to human.

LLF is a global network of sustainably funded and effectively managed conservation areas helping to halt the dramatic loss of biodiversity in outstanding legacy landscapes.
