Linking CBD goals and SDGs for 2021-2030

Framing the post-2020 framework of the CBD by the Sustainable Development Goals

The SDGs are the primary set of global targets that link biodiversity, economic and social considerations together.

The Policy Brief below presents a suggestion for how the Global Biodiversity Framework (GBF) can be intimately linked to Agenda 2030 and the narrative supplied by the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This will help to ensure consistency between them, and between the GBF and other key global policy frameworks. It will also provide a mechanism for continuity after 2030, for achieving the vision for biodiversity for 2050.


A proposed integration of the coral reef-SDG model with the pyramid framework proposed by Brazil for the post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework is shown below. This is a ‘work in progress’ to stimulate discussion in the OEWG consultations.
