Non-state actors play a crucial role within the framework of global environmental governance. Many have contributed to the consultations that shaped the Kunming-Montreal Global Biodiversity Framework (the Biodiversity Plan). Following its historic adoption at COP 15 of the Convention on Biological Diversity in December 2022, non-state actors around the world continue to underpin the world’s transition from agreement to action.

Communication, Education and Public Awareness (CEPA) 

CEPA initiatives contribute to the implementation of the four goals of the Biodiversity Plan.



  • Conservation International is working on expanding nature-positive economies, including by establishing viable linkages between sustainable production and nature conservation.
  • The Nature Positive Initiative supports the full implementation of the Kunming-Montreal Global Biodiversity Framework by governments and other stakeholders. 
  • The Université Laval's Graduate School of International Studies (ESEI) has convened an international Symposium focusing on the nexus of sustainable agriculture, food security and biodiversity protection. 
  • The high-level Nature Positive Tourism Partnership, which brings together the World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC), the World Tourism Organization and the Sustainable Hospitality Alliance, has produced the Nature Positive Travel & Tourism in Action report presented as “the sector’s pledge” to support the implementation of the Kunming-Montreal Global Biodiversity Framework and to empower tourism businesses to become stewards of nature.
  • Through Greening the Blue, the United Nations strives to be part of the Plan by reducing the global footprint of its operations on nature.
