Elevating Mountains in the Post-2020: Global Biodiversity Framework

27 Sep 2019

With the Aichi Biodiversity Targets coming to an end in 2020, the world is preparing for a new set of ambitious biodiversity targets and goals to follow. This brief, prepared ahead of the first Open-Ended Working Group meeting on the Post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework in August 2019, highlights how mountains are important areas for the world’s biodiversity, how mountains are currently reflected in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and why these regions deserve specific attention in the new biodiversity framework. This thematic brief and its contents will be periodically updated as the framework takes further shape.

This brief was prepared by GRID-Arendal and UN Environment in collaboration with the Mountain Research initiative (MRI), the Global Mountain Biodiversity Assessment (GMBA), GRASP,  the Alpine Convention and the Carpathian Convention. It received financial support from the Government of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg through the Vanishing Treasures project.
