CBD - Jennifer Corpuz on the Post - 2020 Global Biodiversity Framework Process and More
The Convention on Biodiversity (CBD) defines biodiversity to include the diversity within species, between species, and of ecosystems. Such a holistic framing of the CBD thereby weaves humans and our basic needs into the health and resilience of ecosystems. The CBD is the first time in international law that the conservation and sustainable use of biological diversity is referred to as “a common concern of humankind.”
In this podcast, we speak to Jennifer Tauli Corpuz (Kankana-ey Igorot), who explains why the CBD is so important to Indigenous Peoples. Jennifer Tauli Corpuz is a lawyer by profession and is the Global Policy and Advocacy Lead for Nia Tero.
