Elevating Mountains in the Post-2020: Global Biodiversity Framework 2.0

25 Feb 2020

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 for the second Open-Ended Working Group meeting on the Post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework in February 2020, highlights how mountains are important areas for the world’s biodiversity and why these regions deserve specific attention, and  outlines concrete policy recommendations for the inclusion of mountains in the Post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework.

This brief was prepared by GRID-Arendal and the UN Environment Programme 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.
