Many voices. Greener cities. Better cities.

The team working for the Post-2020 Biodiversity Framework – EU Support project implemented by Expertise France participated to the international summit The Nature of Cities (TNOC) from the 4th to the 7th of June at the University of Paris Sorbonne of which the objective is to mobilize cities, metropolitan areas and subnational governments.

See the Post-2020 Biodiversity Framework – EU Support Project’s video of the event below.

TNOC Summit represented a unique opportunity for the project team to engage stakeholders on the establishment of a common roadmap for cities, metropolitan areas and subnational governments, in close collaboration with the Secretariat of the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) and ICLEI (Local Governments for Sustainability), with the perspective to support an ambitious international agreement for biodiversity at the COP 15 of the CBD which will be held in Kunming, China, in October 2020.

  1. I am so happy to report back that I have a chance to continue learning about CBD at The Ohio State University in the U.S. in the International Environmental Assessment course. CBD is the first topics Dr. Stacey Fineran assigned to us to discuss on its targets.

    I had such a great time and learned a lot from presenting at TNOC and having a chance to participate in The Post-2020 Biodiversity Framework. I truly appreciate Oliver to take his time to provide more insights into CBD and his work during our Biodiversity Tour at The Essonne Natural Sensitive Areas.

  2. Thanks for the mention! Can you refer to our name correctly – it should be “ICLEI – Local Governments for Sustainability”. Thanks!
