This declaration "gives us an index of the type of leadership of China", comments on AFP Li Shuo de Greenpeace.

The text refers to the objective of protecting 30% of the planet by 2030, without specifying whether Beijing adheres, a way of "recognizing the growing ambition around this objective, without prejudice to the multilateral process", he notes.

China, who officially took the presidency of COP15 Monday, "has an extremely important role to play," complete Li Li, WWF.

"The leadership of the host country, defining the level of ambition needed to solve the crisis of biodiversity and rallying other countries around this ambition, is essential for a fruitful result," she continues, recalling that the China has parallel with encouraging commitments in terms of the fight against climate change.

#CBD # COP 15 kicked off today in Kunming, China, with thousands of participants from around the world. It is the first global conference highlighting ecological conservation. The 2nd part , to be held offline in the first half of 2022, is expected to finalize and adopt the post-2020 global biodiversity framework.

For Julien Rochette, the French think tank IDDRI, this sequence allowed "a revival of the political breath" whose "we want it to translate into the text of the negotiations".

- Geneva, Next step -

Commitments have been taken to finance the protection of biodiversity. China launched a fund for developing countries, abundant by 200 million euros and Japan put on the table about 14 million euros.

According to the French Development Agency (AFD), the needs are evaluated between $ 722 and $ 967 billion a year by 2030, when $ 124 to $ 143 billion is spent and that 500 billion go to harmful subsidies to nature.

These ads constitute "a modest beginning", relieves Li Shuo de Greenpeace. He asks for clarification on the Chinese Fund, "how it will be managed, how it will complement existing financial instruments and on what period" it is. For some countries, the Global Environment Facility (GEF) is the appropriate tool for financing actions for biodiversity.

"The funding issue is crucial, it will determine the commitment of some countries (in the negotiations), including countries in the South," Julien Rochette reports. The ads made in Kunming "put these funding questions at the heart of the discussion and it's a good signal".

Looks are now turning to Geneva. "We are poorly engaged. We will not have a strong plan for the protection of biodiversity in the spring if we do not build it by", warns Li Shuo.

The sequence remains uncertain. Some observers unlikely judge that China welcomes thousands of participants in the spring, speculating on a displacement of negotiations in Montreal, headquarters of the CBD.

Another thinks on the contrary that Beijing will put a point of honor to organize this summit.

Several NFL draft prospects, including Ole Miss QB Matt Corral and Alabama WR Jameson Williams, have helped their cause in a big way.With the COVID-19 pandemic hindering scouting through shortened seasons and other changes, the last year has created a series of challenges still being sorted out today.
