The 15th session of the United Nations Biodiversity Conference (COP15) took place from 7 to 9 December 2022. It ended with a historic agreement on a ’30 by 30′ target.

COP15 resulted in the adoption of the Kunming-Montreal Global Biodiversity Framework (GBF) which aims to address biodiversity loss, restore ecosystems, and protect indigenous rights. Included in this framework is putting 30% of the planet and its ecosystems under protection by 2030.
