international mainstream media such as Agence France Presse and Reuters have paid attention to and reported on the Kunming declaration. It is reported that the Kunming declaration made 17 specific commitments to ensure the formulation, adoption and implementation of an effective “post-2020 global biodiversity framework”

the Kunming declaration promises that the goal of the global biodiversity framework after 2020 should be to reverse the loss of biodiversity by 2030, which is encouraged by WWF. The Foundation believes that ensuring and maintaining a high-level political commitment to reverse the loss of biodiversity in this decade is “a key first step in responding to the current natural crisis”

the United Nations website points out that the Kunming declaration has injected stronger impetus into the formulation of a new global biodiversity framework, so that biodiversity can embark on a road to recovery by 2030 at the latest, and fully realize the vision of “harmonious coexistence between mankind and nature” by 2050

the United Nations also analyzed that the Kunming declaration addressed the key elements required for a successful post-2020 framework

the United Nations further points out that the post-2020 global biodiversity framework will be adopted after formal negotiations in 2022, and the Kunming declaration provides a clear political direction for these negotiations

Agence France Presse also pointed out that the commitments made in the Kunming declaration are expected to pave the way for a new agreement next year

Hong Kong’s South China Morning Post also reported on the topic that the UN biodiversity conference held in China ended with a “strong signal of determination” to solve the problem

the newspaper quoted Elizabeth murema, executive secretary of the Convention on biological diversity, as saying: “the adoption of the Kunming declaration clearly shows that the world supports the ambition that needs to be reflected in the global biodiversity framework after 2020.”

the newspaper quoted Alice Hughes, Deputy Secretary General of the Beijing based China Biodiversity Conservation and green development foundation, as saying, “this is a signal that China has played a leading role in biodiversity conservation.

in addition, Vladimir nezhdanov, an expert of the Russian International Affairs Committee, also said in an interview with the Russian satellite news agency that solving environmental problems will become one of the key topics in the 21st century. Success or failure in this field will mean that one party will gain a leading position in the international relations system in the near future</ P>

China China China has one belt, one road to the environment. The problem is that China’s environmental thinking is more abundant than western countries, because China’s ecological thinking is contained in the concepts of “Chinese dream”, “human destiny community” and “one belt and one road initiative”. China’s one belt, one road initiative, will effectively push forward the ecological agenda, Russian experts also believe. (end)
