UN Conference COP 15
In 2021, there is another attempt to define new worldwide environmental protection goals to be achieved by 2030, and above all to concentrate more on their implementation. Negotiations are currently in progress to debate these goals. The aim is to reach agreement and put them into effect at the World Biodiversity Conference in Kunming, China, at the end of the year, on condition that the coronavirus pandemic allows such a conference to be staged. The meeting is also known as “COP15” because it is the 15th “Conference of the Parties” to the UN Convention on Biodiversity.
