Seeking your views: What should our targets be for life on earth?

The Convention on Biological Diversity is working to develop a new set of global targets called the Post-2020(external link) Global Biodiversity Framework – leading up to Part II of the next conference of parties for the Convention (COP15(external link)).

Over this year and next, world leaders, ministers and policy makers will be meeting to discuss these targets. The New Zealand Government will participate in this process and wants to hear your views on the proposed new global goals and targets.

More information

In considering your feedback, you may want to look at the existing set of global biodiversity targets, the Aichi Biodiversity Targets(external link).
