The federal government has announced that Canada has joined the High Ambition Coalition for Nature and People. Along with Costa Rica, France, and several other countries, the goal of the coalition is to continue to champion important work for global biodiversity. The target would be adopted as a part of the Post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework at the 15th Meeting of the Conference of the Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity in 2021. The framework will include targets to guide the conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity around the world over the next 10 years. Moving forward, Canada plans to continue to work with both the High Ambition Coalition and the Global Ocean Alliance to advocate internationally for conserving 30 percent of the world’s lands and oceans by 2030 and the conservation of biodiversity.
