About the conference 

At COP 16, governments will review the state of implementation of the Kunming-Montreal Global Biodiversity Framework, and parties to the Convention are expected to show that their National Biodiversity Strategies and Action Plans (NBSAPs) align with the Framework. 

COP 16 will further develop the monitoring framework and advance resource mobilization for the Global Biodiversity Framework.
