Global Mountain Biodiversity Assessment (GMBA)

Elevating Mountains in the Post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework 2.0

The Convention on Biological Diversity is currently working on the Post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework at the second meeting of the Open-Ended Working Group held in Rome. To support the dialogue and negotiations on priorities, goals and targets for mountains in 2030 and beyond, the UN Environment Programme (UNEP), GRID-Arendal (GRIDA), the Global Mountain Biodiversity Assessment (GMBA), and the Mountain Research Initiative (MRI) have issued a new version of the Policy Brief "Elevating Mountains in the Post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework 2.0" initially developed for the first meeting of the Open-Ended Working Group held in Nairobi.

This policy brief will be launched officially on Feburary 25, 2020 during an informal mountain gathering organized at the margins of the Open-Ended Working Group meeting by the UN Environment Programme (UNEP), GRID-Arendal (GRIDA), the Mountain Research Initiative (MRI), the Global Mountain Biodiversity Assessment (GMBA), the Mountain Partnership, the Secretariat of the Carpathian Convention, the Secretariat of the Alpine Convention, the Government of Austria, the Government of Hungary, and the Government of Poland.
