Talking global science, policy and innovation: UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration

06 Nov 2020

In this participatory plenary, speakers from the UN Environment Programme discuss the post-2020 global biodiversity framework, flagging key shortcomings from the past decade, while laying out the plans and priorities for the critical period ahead. Through constructive debate, key policymakers, scientists, business leaders and community representatives explore how the new policy frameworks can spark a vivid societal dialogue, consolidate next steps, and pave the way for direct and inclusive action from individuals, civil society, local authorities and the private sector.
