The Kunming-Montreal Global Biodiversity Framework (GBF) adopted by COP 15 represents the most ambitious global agreement on biodiversity in the history of environmental governance and will serve as the world's framework for actions taken at all levels to safeguard and restore biodiversity under 23 targets to be achieved by 2030 and towards four long-term goals for 2050.

The adoption of this ambitious and robust framework represents a remarkable demonstration of multilateralism and international cooperation and an important first milestone of a long process that aims to halt biodiversity loss. The implementation journey has just started and, for the Framework to be successful, there is a need for Governments to take urgent action at all levels. 

As CBD COP 15 President, the People's Republic of China would like to join efforts with the international community to take action and ensure that the implementation journey begins as soon as possible in order to achieve the targets and goals set out in the GBF.
