This report from UK think tank the IIED provides a guide for 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 strengthen the chapters on Enabling Conditions, Implementation Support Mechanisms, and Responsibility and Transparency (the ‘foundational elements’) in the post-2020 GBF. It helps negotiators develop national positions and offers information on the rationale behind strengthening these aspects of the GBF. This is the third 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.
