Followers of those in the climate space are probably bombarding your feed with posts about COP15.
The following is a brief overview of what it is, what to expect, and a topic of particular significance to keep an eye out for.
It is imperative to recognize that COP15 (often referred to as NatureCOP by the media) is a United Nations-organized gathering dedicated to environmental action focused specifically on the preservation of biodiversity. This is akin to the annual UNFCCC climate conference, COP27.
As part of this conference, which takes place in Canada from December 17 to December 19, delegates and nations from around the world will stand together to create a framework to protect the world’s biodiversity by the year 2030.
Maritime solutions (including El Nino, the loss of species, and the increase in ocean temperatures).
Biodiversity solutions on the ground (including extinction of species, mapping, data, fauna and fauna ecological connections, and the relationship between infrastructure and nature).
Funding and allocating capital as well as regulations.
