Urban biodiversity and Ecosystem Services towards CBD CoP 15 in China

What we are doing

This project intends to initiate an early-engagement dialogue between key actors especially from Germany, Europe, and China, engaged in promoting urban biodiversity and ecosystems at the local and subnational level. It will engage important local actors such as the municipalities from Beijing and Kunming in order to foster their ownership over urban nature concepts. In addition, the project process and deliverables will be used to advocate for the topic of urban biodiversity and ecosystems to be mainstreamed in the discussions on the Post 2020 Global Biodiversity Framework.

What we are achieving

The objective of the project is to analyze the development of urban biodiversity and ecosystem services concepts and practices in urban areas and better integrate them into the science and policy discussions that are taking place in the context of the preparation of CoP15. ICLEI´s focus on key Chinese actors since China is the host country of the CBD CoP 15, as well as on German, European, and other international actors who play a major role in the implementation of measures that promote urban biodiversity and ecosystem services at the local and sub-national level. The specific goal of the project is to provide an overview of the current scientific discourse and environmental policy processes and to raise awareness of the identified key actors through a series of consultation workshops taking place in Europe and in China.
