Achieving global biodiversity goals by 2050 requires urgent and integrated actions

Governments are negotiating actions intended to halt biodiversity loss and put it on a path to recovery by 2050. This article shows that bending the curve for biodiversity is possible, but only if actions are implemented urgently and in an integrated manner.

The publication provides an independent scientific synthesis of how actions across targets can achieve the outcomes for ecosystems, species, and genetic diversity defined in goal A of the Post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework (GBF). Connecting these actions to biodiversity outcomes and tracking progress remains a challenge.
