COP15 in Montreal

Initially, the UN discussions aimed at striking a deal about the post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework were planned in Kunming, China. Due to the China’s zero-Covid policy, the negotiations to set the global policy for the next decade will be held in Montreal, Canada, between December 5-17. 

China will continue as president of COP15, and Huang Runqiu, China’s minister of ecology and environment, will remain the chair.
