The International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) has been involved in the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) since its drafting and through its development, providing technical and policy advice and supporting the implementation of the Convention and its protocols, in line with IUCN’s goals and mission.

IUCN Commissions play a key role in the adoption and implementation of the Global Biodiversity Framework (GBF) to catalyze decisive action to halt the loss of biodiversity. IUCN's knowledge products provide data for biodiversity assessments, inform the setting of global and national targets and contribute to the development of biodiversity indicators.
This panel will feature a lively discussion on the role, strategies and actions IUCN Commissions are taking to support the implementation of GBF and what are their perspectives on the global vision of a world living in harmony with nature by 2050.

We will have an exceptional pool of experts composed of: Sonia Peña Moreno, Director of the International Policy Centre at IUCN (moderator); Jon Paul Rodriguez, Chair, IUCN Species Survival Commission; Ángela Andrade, Chair, IUCN Commission on Ecosystem Management; and Madhu Rao, Chair, IUCN World Commission on Protected Areas.
