Strengthening the foundational elements of 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 strengthen the chapters on Enabling Conditions, Implementation Support Mechanisms, and Responsibility and Transparency (the ‘foundational elements’) in the post-2020 GBF. It helps negotiators develop national positions and offers information on the rationale behind strengthening these aspects of the GBF.
