World Forum on Global Strategy for Plant Conservation

(2019 GSPC) 


The 15th meeting of the Conference of the Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD COP15) will be held in China in 2020. The conference will establish the next 10 years strategic plan, to set up global biodiversity conservation targets for 2021-2030. The year before the CBD COP15, the World Forum on Global Strategy for Plant Conservation (2019 GSPC) will be held in China.


The aims of the forum are to discuss how to improve the current draft of the Global Strategy for Plant Conservation 2021-2030 and how to integrate them into the post-2020 Biodiversity Strategy Framework; to review the progress and lessons learned in implementations of the current GSPC and demonstrate the best practices and plans on wild plant conservation during the COP15. We are pleased to invite experts and relevant colleagues from all over the world and China to participate in and contribute to the Conference.


Main Topics:

  1. Status on GSPC progress worldwide
  2. Lessons learnt from GSPC implementation – successes, challenges and future perspectives
  3. Progress on the achievement of the China’s Strategy for Plant Conservation
  4. A focus on GSPC priorities: the sustainable use of plant diversity, illegal international trade in plants and genetic diversity of socio-economically important plants
  5. Views, positions and perspectives on the Post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework
  6. A GSPC framework for the post-2020 period
