The Global Biodiversity Framework - A Framework for All Life on Earth?

The Global Biodiversity Framework -  A Framework for All Life on Earth?

One million species are currently at risk of extinction. Back in 2011, almost 200 countries agreed to the Aichi Biodiversity Targets, a set of 20 targets intended to protect nature, save biodiversity and enhance its benefits for people. All 20 targets were missed. In late December 2022, the Kunming-Montreal Global Biodiversity Framework (GBF) was finally signed, a landmark agreement which consists of four key goals and a set of 23 targets, intended to address biodiversity loss, restore ecosystems and protect indigenous rights. Will this truly act as "a framework for all life on earth?" We discuss the highs and lows of the outcomes from the biodiversity talks at COP15 with Theiva Lingam, a public interest lawyer and environmental activist, and the legal advisor for Sahabat Alam Malaysia.
