Political leaders participating in the United Nations Summit on Biodiversity representing countries from all regions and the European Union (EU) have committed to reversing biodiversity loss by 2030

Global leaders including Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina launched "Leaders' Pledge for Nature: United to Reverse Biodiversity Loss by 2030 for Sustainable Development" on Monday demonstrating their commitment for nature, biodiversity, and global goals.

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina is a signatory to the initiative with other global leaders including Emmanuel Macron, Angela Merkel, Justin Trudeau, Jacinda Ardern, and Boris Johnson.

Political leaders participating in the United Nations Summit on Biodiversity representing countries from all regions and the European Union (EU) have committed to reversing biodiversity loss by 2030.

By doing so, these leaders are sending a united signal to step up global ambition and encourage others to match their collective ambition for nature, climate, and people with the scale of the crisis at hand.

In endorsing this "Pledge for Nature," the global leaders will commit not simply to words, but to meaningful action and mutual accountability to address the planetary emergency.

The signatories to the Leaders’ Pledge for Nature have committed to putting wildlife and the climate at the heart of post-pandemic economic recovery plans, promising to address the climate crisis, deforestation, ecosystem degradation, and pollution.

The other countries signed, so far, on this issue are included -- Bhutan, Canada, United Kingdom, Belgium, Denmark, EU, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Mexico, Netherland, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, Spain, and Sweden.  

With this Pledge, they also aim to support the UN system and its fundamental role in catalyzing the global response to this crisis in the upcoming decisive months and years.

The global leaders will join forces in the run-up to the key international events and processes taking place throughout 2021, including the G7, the G20, the IUCN World Conservation Congress, the 5th UN Environment Assembly, UNFCCC COP26, and the UN Ocean Conference, aiming to achieve ambitious and realistic outcomes to pave the way for a strong Post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework.

They will urge all stakeholders to join us in making commitments to address the planetary emergency on the road to CBD CoP 15 and beyond.

They will be meeting again next year, and beyond, at such key international events, in particular at the next UN General Assembly High Level Week in September 2021, to review progress and reaffirm these commitments.
