On behalf of the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD), UNEP FI is excited to officially announce the second Finance and Biodiversity Day for Monday 28 October 2024, at COP16 in Cali, Colombia.

Building on the success of the inaugural event in Montreal, this event aims to foster meaningful engagement among CEOs, Finance Ministers, and other leaders in biodiversity and finance, providing a platform for high-level debate and collaboration on meeting society’s nature goals. It is planned just ahead of the High-Level Segment of the COP.
