WWF Annual Review 2022 - 4

LANDMARK
COMMITMENT TO
RESTORE NATURE
[ WE DID IT! ]
An ambitious global plan for nature recovery in the coming decade was
agreed at the UN COP15 biodiversity conference in December 2022. And a clear
Global Goal for Nature was set. Now we must turn the plan into action.
ears of intense, collaborative and delicate
advocacy by WWF in partnership with many
others finally paid off. A historic commitment
to halt and reverse biodiversity loss by 2030 − a
Global Goal for Nature hailed as the equivalent to
climate's 1.5ºC − was agreed in December at the UN
Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) COP15
conference in Montreal.
The Kunming-Montreal Agreement, including a
new Global Biodiversity Framework, brings together
the 196 governments that are signatories to the
convention to commit, among other measures, to
conserve at least 30% of land, fresh water and ocean
globally, respectively doubling and quadrupling the
current protection for land and sea; restore 30% of
degraded ecosystems; mobilize at least $US200 billion
per year by 2030 for conservation efforts, double the
2020 baseline figure; and eliminate, phase out or
reform subsidies harmful to nature. Crucially, states
also committed to respect the rights and leadership
of Indigenous Peoples and local community stewards
of sustainable development in making this happen,
and recognized the contributions of Indigenous and
traditional territories towards delivering the new 30%
target. A clear signal has been set, which must be the
launch pad for action from governments, business and
society to transition to a nature-positive world, with
more biodiversity by 2030 than there was a decade
earlier - a springboard for ongoing nature recovery,
and a vital support for climate action and delivery
of the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
At a time when multilateralism seemed to be
collapsing under the pressure of conflicts and
geopolitical fractures, the Kunming-Montreal
WWF INTERNATIONAL 2022
Agreement feels even more special, as if nature
was able to bring the world together.
For WWF and fellow advocates of a global nature
recovery plan, it's been a long and difficult journey
amid the deep disruption caused by COVID-19,
geopolitical tensions and the global economy under
stress. We first outlined the need for a new and
ambitious roadmap to nature recovery - a New Deal
for Nature and People - at the CBD's COP14 in 2018,
with momentum building through key moments such
as the Leaders' Pledge for Nature and the launch of
the nature-positive Global Goal for Nature - " halt and
reverse biodiversity loss by 2030 " . The agreement at
COP15 was hard won and the road to implementation
will be no less challenging. Despite celebrating the
overall ambition, deep concerns remain about the
agreement's lack of measurable targets on reducing
the footprint of key economic sectors and a mandatory
ratcheting mechanism to require government action
if targets are not met. WWF's Living Planet Report,
which confirmed this year a 69% average decline in
wildlife populations since 1970, provides a chilling
reminder of the ongoing crisis and the need for
systemic change. We will bend the curve of global
biodiversity loss only if more and better spatial
conservation is combined with nature-positive
transitions in key sectors like agriculture, fishing,
forestry, infrastructure and mining.
Nevertheless, 2022 has seen an unprecedented leap
forward in global efforts to safeguard the future of
people and nature; and now, using the KunmingMontreal
Agreement as our master plan and the new
Global Goal for Nature as our guiding light, is the time
to focus on working together on implementation.
