Biodiversity for Malaysia is a monthly series which aims to get everyone on the same page when it comes to all things biodiversity-related, especially on issues surrounding the Convention on Biological Diversity post-2020 framework process, the 30X30 target, and more. As we've been discussing over the past few months, there has been little progress on negotiations for a new Post 2020 Global Biodiversity Framework (GBF). Talks in Geneva in March had little progress, and the recently convened talks in Nairobi in June were said to have had only two clear wins. There is particular interest in Target 3, the so-called “30x30 target” which looks to protect 30% of the world’s land and oceans by 2030. But recent interventions by many countries, including Malaysia, have resulted in a somewhat confused situation. What are the issues worrying countries about this target? We discuss perceived problems and available solutions with Jim Gamble (Programme Director, Pacific Environment), Masha Kalinina (Senior Officer, Conservation Support, The Pew Charitable Trusts) and Julian Hyde (General Manager, Reef Check Malaysia).
