UN biodiversity conference may be postponed again over pandemic

The United Nations biodiversity conference this year, known as COP 15 and previously slated to be held in the Yunnan provincial capital Kunming in 2020, may have to be postponed again due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

"In light of current circumstances, there are still uncertainties over COP 15," said Cui Shuhong, director-general of nature and eco-conservation at the Ministry of Ecology and Environment, on Thursday.

He said China is in close communication with the Secretariat of the Convention on Biological Diversity on when and how the conference will be held. Following a new assessment, "the secretariat will announce new arrangements to the international society in a timely manner," he said.

Due to the pandemic, the conference was previously postponed from October last year to May this year.

Cui stressed, however, the preparations for the conference are well underway "with no letting up in efforts and compromise in work targets".

Themed "Ecological Civilization - Building a Shared Future for All Life on Earth", the conference is tasked to elaborate on the post-2020 global framework on biodiversity and identify global biodiversity conservation goals up to 2030.

A hot topic and highlight of the conference, the framework is also a major challenge the biennial gathering confronts, Cui said.

He said China looks forward to seeing the framework show the three objectives of the convention, namely the conservation of biological diversity, the sustainable use of its components and the sharing of the benefits, in a balanced manner.

With lessons borrowed from the Aichi Biodiversity Targets in 2010, China hopes that the framework will be ambitious and balanced. Aside from offering guidance for the world's future efforts, goals should be set in a scientific, reasonable and sustainable manner, he said.

Passed at COP 10 in Nagoya, Japan, the Aichi targets included 20 ambitious conservation goals to safeguard global biodiversity until 2020, ranging from preventing the extinction of threatened species to halving the rate of forest loss. Many of the goals, however, were not well-fulfilled.

Cui also said the framework should accommodate the concerns of the developing countries.

"The capability of the world, especially the developing nations, should be brought into consideration when setting the targets. As to the mechanisms on resource mobilization, implementation and evaluation, support to the developing countries should be enhanced," he said.

WayoftheSun. False info? I am just raising some points how the present situation has come to this. Don't blame me but the unscrupulous breeders and owners that keep dogs for the wrong reasons and on top of that don't know how to deal with them.

I have no problem understanding that your shepherd is a proper dog and you know how to deal with but the situation I see around me here is China is different. Lots of gangster breeders and owners that don't know even the basics.

A muzzle is not the solution. Just two recent cases in England and New Zealand where kids were mauled by their family dogs in their own homes.

@WayoftheSun
I largely agree with you that it is not the dog but the owner that is the problem. But you have to realize that there is a correlation between them, like people that buy a Lamborghini are more likely to be involved in a high speed accident than people who buy a QQ.
The problem is that people that, let say, buy a pit bull terrier, usually are not doing so to prove that these are nice family dogs but do so for the reasons why these dogs are forbidden now.

An other point is that certain breeds which where OK before, like for example the various shepherd breeds, for whom I have as well have good experiences, I was allowed to walk a friend's shepherd when only 4 years old, have changed.
Many of these dogs are not any longer what they used to be. This because of unscrupulous breeding for commercial reasons. The nice and friendly shepherd I walked as a 4 year old is not the same as the shepherd my neighbor bought as a status symbol to go with his Cayenne.
For this reason I support banning breeds. Not because of the dogs but because of the owners.

Dognappig
Kidnapping of a dog in our compound occurred yesterday. The dog was lured outside with a ham sausage and then taken off the compound. Security camera's showed all the action even of the kidnapping lady buying the ham sausage in the convenience store next to the compound.
The dog involved was an Akita, which is one of the forbidden dog breeds in Kunming. Apparently there still is a market for these dogs.

When I read the header I thought that is fast because last night the just visited me. Turned out the article is about the previous census ;-)
