Global goals for 2050

The Global Biodiversity Framework has four long-term goals for 2050 related to the 2050 Vision for biodiversity.

GOAL A

The integrity, connectivity and resilience of all ecosystems are maintained, enhanced or restored, substantially increasing the area of natural ecosystems by 2050;
Human-induced extinction of known threatened species is halted, and by 2050, the extinction rate and risk of all species is reduced by tenfold and the abundance of native wild species is increased to healthy and resilient levels;
Genetic diversity within populations of wild and domesticated species is maintained, safeguarding their adaptive potential.

GOAL B

Biodiversity is sustainably used and managed and nature's contributions to people, including ecosystem functions and services, are valued, maintained and enhanced, and those currently in decline are restored, supporting the achievement of sustainable development for the benefit of of present and future generations by 2050.

GOAL C

Monetary and non-monetary benefits from the use of genetic resources and information on the digital sequence of genetic resources, as well as traditional knowledge associated with genetic resources, where applicable, are shared fairly and equitably, including, where applicable addition, with indigenous peoples and local communities, and substantially increased by 2050, while ensuring that traditional knowledge associated with genetic resources is properly protected, thus contributing to the conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity, in accordance with the instruments of access and sharing of internationally agreed benefits.

GOAL D

Adequate means of implementation, including financial resources, capacity building, technical and scientific cooperation and access and technology transfer for the full implementation of the Kunming-Montreal Global Framework for Biodiversity, are ensured and equitably accessible to all Parties, especially Developing country parties, in particular least developed countries and small island developing States, as well as countries with economies in transition, progressively closing the biodiversity funding gap of USD 700 billion per year and aligning flows with the Kunming-Montreal World Biodiversity Framework and the 2050 Vision for Biodiversity.
