This report from UK think tank IIED provides a guide of negotiators.

The post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework (GBF) will be a major milestone in global agreements on biodiversity conservation, setting international ambition for the next decade. This guide seeks to support Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) who wish to see strengthened provisions for human development in the draft post-2020 GBF. It will help negotiators to develop arguments for enhancing the contributions of biodiversity to human development. The final section offers ideas for the language that could be used to strengthen current provisions for human development. This is the second in a series of guides published by IIED that will support CBD negotiators to influence key aspects of the post-2020 GBF where it aligns to their national interests.
