Published: 6 Oct 2020
Type: Publication

The fifth Global Biodiversity Outlook report published by the United Nations Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) in September 2020, warns starkly that the world has so far failed to halt the destruction of wildlife and life-sustaining ecosystems. The report provides a global summary of progress made towards the Aichi Biodiversity Targets and is based on a range of indicators, research studies and assessments (in particular the IPBES Global Assessment on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services), as well as national reports provided by countries on their implementation of the UN CBD.

This summary highlights the key headlines from the Global Biodiversity Report, the relevance of the report for companies, and how we are working to make sure that business has a coherent and consistent voice which can help to shape the new framework at CBD COP 15.
