Nations adopt landmark UN Biodiversity agreement in Montreal

The EU joined 195 countries to agree on a new set of goals guiding global action through 2030 to halt and reverse nature loss. This resulted in the adoption of a historic deal, the Kunming-Montreal Global Biodiversity Framework.
The Kunming-Montreal agreement will accelerate ambitious policies around the world and mobilise financing for biodiversity from all sources. With this deal, the global community commits itself to protecting and restoring nature and removing pollution with different actions, with most of them already forming part of the European Green Deal. This will ensure that nature continues sustaining societies, economies and communities for decades to come.
Key goals and targets for 2030 and 2050 have been set, including the restoration of 30% of degraded ecosystems, the reduction of nutrient loss by at least 50% by 2030, the upscaling of nature-based solutions to tackle climate change and an increase in sustainable land management practices.
