Post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework: Support and a Pathway for Inland Water Ecosystems in the ‘30 by 30’ Target, Monitoring Framework and Implementation


Key Recommendations: Explicit inclusion of inland water* ecosystems in the area-based conservation targets and indicators is critical to recover and safeguard the most threatened and least protected ecosystems and biodiversity on the planet. This briefing provides an overview of the evidence for this recommendation, a global baseline estimate of their current protection status and recommended pathways for inclusion, beginning with a call for the following changes to include inland waters in the final text of the Post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework: An Information Document addressing these topics in detail will be produced in coordination with and for use by Parties and organizations in advance of COP15. The consortium of organizations supporting this brief is committed to operationalizing the recommendations outlined below.
