Transformative change for biodiversity is underpinned by action from countries’ national, sub-national and local governments, but with crucial involvement and mobilisation from civil society and non-state actors. Their contributions should be valued throughout the GBF negotiation process, their positions should be encouraged to converge to give them even more weight and should expand to new partners, including the private sector and economic activities to de-silo and amplify their support and mobilization. Raising awareness on the GBF will be instrumental in the early phase of its effective and prompt implementation. In the months to come and over the duration of the project, the latter aims at supporting mobilization campaigns to help its partners in boosting the implementation of the GBF.
Expertise France is building a pool of experts with competences on stakeholders’ mobilization across society either at regional or national levels and/or from key sectors in relation to the key transformative topics identified by the project that could be tasked on this and other potential projects.
