Strengthening the development dimensions in the post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework

The post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework (GBF) will be a major milestone in global agreements on biodiversity conservation, setting international ambition for the next decade. This guide seeks to support Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) who wish to see strengthened provisions for human development in the draft post-2020 GBF. It will help negotiators to develop arguments for enhancing the contributions of biodiversity to human development. The final section offers ideas for the language that could be used to strengthen current provisions for human development.
