Policy Brief: Towards an Integrated Approach for Biodiversity Conservation — Lessons from UNDP’s work in China
Oct 8, 2021
With the Conference on Biodiversity (CBD COP15) taking place in Kunming and the post 2020 global biodiversity framework to be agreed, 2021 marks a critical year, offering valuable opportunities for China and the world to strengthen commitments and push for transformative change towards sustainability. In this context, this policy brief presents a timely review of China’s past efforts on biodiversity protection and conservation, in which the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) has been a significant partner, supporting this process. The aim of the brief is to summarize policy contributions made by China and UNDP’s support and offer key recommendations on existing policy gaps for future consideration.
