The session of the Subsidiary Body for the Implementation of the Convention (SBI-3) is implementing its work under the post-2020 work plan and will lay a solid foundation for its adoption and implementation after COP-15 (COP-15). The aim of this strategic plan is to increase funding for biodiversity, to better align investments with the needs of nature and people, and to identify risks and impacts on nature. Delegates will also work on mechanisms for monitoring, reporting and reviewing the implementation and strengthening of countries' capacity to manage and protect biodiversity, access to ecosystem services and achieve the Sustainable Development Goals. Plans are also being developed to increase outreach and public awareness to support biodiversity conservation action and to fully support a structure based on gender rights and equality and women's equal access to leadership, participation and decision-making.

The Subsidiary Body for Implementation of the Convention also continues its work on the implementation of the other instruments of the Convention, the Cartagena Protocol on Biosafety, the Nagoya Protocol on Access and Separation of Concerns and the Working Group on Article 8 (j) and the Convention on Traditional Knowledge.

The working group (WG2020-3) is discussing how to align the actions needed to realize the 2050 Vision of Living in Harmony with Nature, determining how to track and report on activities, and ultimately how to measure progress. This solution includes the five drivers of biodiversity loss, land-use change, unsustainable use, climate change, pollution and invasive alien species, as well as indirect drivers such as unsustainable production and consumption. Discussions are based on the first draft of the post-2020 framework published in July 2020, which includes a long-term vision to 2050 and a medium-term mission to 2030, with the addition of 4 goals and 21 targets, both direct and indirect drivers of biodiversity reduction. Other issues that need to be addressed are resource mobilization, a financial mechanism and access to and benefit sharing from digital sequential information from genetic resources.

In general, all documents and resolutions considered and adopted at these sessions will be adopted at the 15th Conference of the Parties to the UN Convention on Biological Diversity in Kunming, China, and will be adopted and implemented as a roadmap to achieve the 2030 goals.
