The COP15 or 15th meeting of the UN Biodiversity conference will take place online from October 11-15, followed by a in-person conference from April 25 โ€“ May 8, 2022. The conference was originally scheduled for 2020 but it was delayed due to the COVID19 pandemic.





Despite on-going efforts, biodiversity is deteriorating worldwide and this decline is projected to worsen with business-as-usual scenarios. The UN Biodiversity Conference will convene governments from around the world to agree a new set of goals for nature over the next decade through the Convention on Biological Diversity post 2020 framework process. The framework sets out an ambitious plan to implement broad-based action to bring about a transformation in societyโ€™s relationship with biodiversity and to ensure that, by 2050, the shared vision of living in harmony with nature is fulfilled. Read details about the framework in link in comment.

Opened for signature at the Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro in 1992, and entering into force in December 1993, the Convention on Biological Diversity is an international treaty for the conservation of biodiversity, the sustainable use of the components of biodiversity and the equitable sharing of the benefits derived from the use of genetic resources.


With 196 Parties, the Convention has near universal participation. Only the USA and the Holy See have not ratified the treaty.

Yunnan province accounts for 4% of total Chinaโ€™s land but the province has all types of ecosystems, except ocean and desert, and the number of species of each genus in the province either approaches or exceeds 50% of Chinaโ€™s total. Yunnan is sometimes labeled as โ€˜the Kingdom of Animals and Plantsโ€™.




Yunnan has actively carried out afforestation and environmental protection in recent decades. By December 2020, there were 362 nature reserves in Yunnan, accounting for 14 percent of the provincial territory.
