UN biodiversity conference (COP15)

IIED at the 15th Convention on Biological Diversity conference in Kunming, China (COP15)

The second phase of the 15th Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD COP15) conference takes place in 2022 when Parties are due to adopt the post-2020 global biodiversity framework.

IIED is working to put locally-led action at the heart of delivering this international agreement to transform our relationship with nature. With our partners, we will analyse events and present research, and are writing a series of blogs exploring not just why action led by Indigenous Peoples and local communities is critical to delivering the framework, but also how these solutions are already making change happen on the ground.

This page contains our latest research, commentary, news, analysis and events ahead of the CBD COP15.
