This document is intended as an information tool for civil society, especially for those who are unable to follow the CBD negotiations, to provide a common ground for the work that lies ahead in preparations for COP 15 and the adoption of a new Post-2020 GBF. It is composed of short information pieces that summarize what was discussed in relation to selected agenda items and highlight a few key elements base on what was experienced by CBD Alliance members during the online SBI 3 and SBSTTA 24 meetings. The content does not necessarily represent common positions nor addresses every agenda item, but it does provide a useful and relevant analysis of key issues discussed during the CBD negotiations.
