Canada First Country to Contribute to New Global Biodiversity Framework Fund

Canada First Country to Contribute to New Global Biodiversity Framework Fund

“Biodiversity is the critical foundation of our well-being and the health of our planet. The new Global Biodiversity Framework Fund will play a key role in addressing biodiversity loss. It will address it in developing countries, where the impacts of nature loss are highest; it will address it in a gender-responsive manner, including through cross-sectoral partnerships; it will address it in collaboration with Indigenous Peoples, the original guardians of the lands and seas. Canada is making a significant contribution to this new fund and continuing to show our support for the GEF’s eight replenishment to ensure the protection of our planet’s biodiversity for generations to come.” -- Ahmed Hussen, Minister of International Development
