The EU Foreign Policy Instrument (FPI) action “Post-2020 Biodiversity Framework – EU Support” was implemented by Expertise France between 2018 and 2021. It was aimed at raising ambition and fostering biodiversity commitments by parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity and other stakeholders in the run-up to the adoption of a transformative Post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework (GBF). The action implemented activities that helped increase political coherence, synergies between stakeholders and policy and diplomatic biodiversity ambition among State and non-State partners and with Delegations of the European Union in over 20 targeted countries. It helped establish informed positions and a converging approach to biodiversity action, in line with the priorities of the EU and its member states.

For the second phase of the action between January 2022 and December 2024 and financed by the European Commission's Directorate-General for International Partnerships (DG INTPA), the action will show what can be achieved when taking a transformative perspective on key biodiversity topics. Its main objective is to support concrete transformative actions for the adoption and effective implementation of an ambitious Global Biodiversity Framework, conducive to reaching the vision of “Living in Harmony with Nature”.

Action activities will include (i) Development, creation and contribution to knowledge products in relation to key topics; (ii) Provision of tailored technical assistance in the translation and implementation of the GBF for selected actors in international, regional, national and local settings; (iii) Organisation of events (workshops, conferences, exchanges of experts, dialogues) related to best cases, lessons learnt and key issues;  (iv) Support for the visibility and communication of key partners and strategic events; and (v) Coordination of a mobilisation campaign for convergence, synergies, the strengthening and the concrete actions on the ground by a coalition of high ambition stakeholders. Point (v) is the subject for this call for project for a Global Campaign for Nature and People.

The project selected through this call for projects will need to fit into the specific objectives of the Post 2020 Biodiversity Framework - EU Support`s second phase, namely: (i) to contribute to making the GBF’s main strategic components more operational by making best practices, knowledge and tools available to countries and other partners, and (ii) to foster ambitious commitments and actions by key stakeholders for the effective GBF implementation.
