The 14th meeting of the Conference of the Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity (COP14) will be held between November 17th and November 29th in Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt.

The COP 14 will be the occasion for the GEO BON delegation to officially present the Bejing Call on biodiversity observations for post-2020 decision-making, which calls for parties to the CBD to significantly step up their efforts on the collection, analysis and delivery of biodiversity observations to advance the world towards the 2050 Vision for Biodiversity. To achieve this, the development of National Biodiversity Observations Networks should be a priority in the post-2020 strategy and we will stand ready to support Parties in their efforts.


The GEO BON Secretariat and partners will (co-)organise side-events to present our vision, approaches and products to the different delegations attending the meeting:
