As the Aichi targets come to an end, we are left with the CBD’s 2050 Vision: “by 2050, biodiversity is valued, conserved, restored and wisely used, maintaining ecosystem services, sustaining a healthy planet and delivering benefits essential for all people” ("Living in Harmony with Nature", CBD Strategic Plan for Biodiversity 2011-2020). Looking back at and learning from the last decade brings important questions for the biodiversity scientific community as to how this vision can be achieved beyond 2020 and through which knowledge and tools.
This survey thus aims at (i) proposing a set of priorities emanating from the scientific community and (ii) critically analyse current targets and indicators.
Two webinars will be organised by Future Earth and CNRS (date and time TBD) to present and discuss the results of this consultation, before and after the Conference of the Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity (COP 14).
Following the reception of your written contributions and the two webinars, responses and webinar discussion points will be collected and submitted as a service to the CBD Secretariat by December 15. Should you need any further information, please do not hesitate to contact email@example.com.
DEADLINE: Monday, 5 November 2018.
Answers can be written either in English or French. You may submit answers as an individual or an organisation.
