A new agenda for the Future of Nature is taking shape ahead of the 15th Conference of the Parties (COP) of the UN Convention on Biological Diversity in Beijing in 2020 – where new international targets for protecting nature and biodiversity will be established. Ahead of the Beijing COP, a multi-stakeholder effort is required to identify related risks and illustrate opportunities. The Global Future Council on Nature and the Economy will engage an influential group of experts and leaders to explore these issues, catalyze a bio-diversity action agenda, and help shape and advance the World Economic Forum’s Biodiversity Action Initiative.
