Global Biodiversity Framework – Early Action Support

Project summary

On December 19, 2022, 190 countries reached an agreement on the Kunming-Montreal Global Biodiversity Framework (GBF). This program sets an ambitious path to achieve a global vision of a world living in harmony with nature by 2050 and provides a framework for global action on biodiversity and paving the way for a nature-positive and sustainable world by 2050 and defines actions around the world by 2030 for the conservation and protection of nature and its general services for people.

To support countries in implementing the goals and objectives of the Global Biodiversity Program, the Global Environment Facility has allocated funds for a global project that is being implemented jointly with UNDP and UNEP in 138 countries all around the globe.

Main objectives

The aim of the project is to accelerate the readiness and early actions for the implementation of the Kunming-Montreal Global Framework for Biodiversity Conservation, by providing financial and technical support to countries so that they can begin to coordinate their national biodiversity conservation programs, National Biodiversity Strategies and Action Plans (NBSAPs).

Expected results:

  1. The analysis of the national strategy and action plan has been carried out and based on it, proposals have been prepared to update the goals and objectives in accordance with the Global Biodiversity Program.

  2. An assessment of the monitoring system, including existing gaps, has been carried out, and based on it, proposals have been prepared to improve their effectiveness.

  3. A comprehensive evaluation was conducted on the current national biodiversity conservation policy, resulting in identifying key actions necessary to align the country's policy with the Global Biodiversity Program.

  4. Identify opportunities for mobilizing financial resources for biodiversity conservation.
