World Biodiversity Summit – New York

Now returning for its second year, World Biodiversity Summit offers a platform to tackle the crucial issue of biodiversity loss and to meet the goals outlined in the Post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework. World Biodiversity Summit (WBS) is organised by the World Climate Foundation and takes place alongside three pivotal events: UNGA in New York, UNFCCC COP27 in Sharm el-Sheikh and finally UNCBD COP15 in Montreal.

World Biodiversity Summit is pioneering in its focus on bringing together private and public sector stakeholders to facilitate strong cross-sectoral collaboration. It gathers global representatives, including institutional investors, government leaders, agricultural and infrastructure agents, experts in the biodiversity field and leading international organisations. It’s a springboard for bold leadership, investment-driven solutions and the development of the ambitious commitments necessary to meet global goals.

At World Biodiversity Summit - New York, you can expect high-level panel discussions with multiple expert speakers already involved and more confirming shortly. The ambitious programme will include topics such as the role of technology in tackling biodiversity loss, how to catalyse nature markets, the importance of cross-sector collaboration and how to transition to Nature-positive supply chains.

In-person participation in World Biodiversity Summit - New York is invitation-only, but digital participation is open to all.
