Biodiversity For Malaysia: Little Progress at UN Biodiversity Talks?

We continue our monthly series looking at the Convention on Biological Diversity post-2020 framework process, and in this episode, focus on the recent meeting in Geneva to negotiate this framework. Many are reporting that the two weeks of negotiations to establish the draft of a new global deal to reverse the loss of wildlife and habitats were a “major disappointment,” after countries failed to agree on any new biodiversity targets. What happened in Geneva, and is there hope in reaching targets or even an overarching mission for the convention? We discuss this and more with Julian Hyde (General Manager, Reef Check Malaysia) and Jasmin Mohd Saad (Policy Consultant, Reef Check Malaysia). 

You can check out the first episode of this ongoing series here.
