The conference, which was tasked with achieving a new global agreement on preserving nature, would take
place from Dec. 5 to Dec. 17, the secretariat of the UN Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) announced on Tuesday.

The so-called Global Biodiversity Framework “will set the world on a path to bending the curve on nature loss,’’ the CDB said.

A UN conference on biodiversity would be held in the Kenyan capital Nairobi this week.

CBD Executive Secretary Elizabeth Maruma Mrema thanked China for its flexibility.

The secretariat explained that as Montreal is where the CBD is based, the Canadian city is the first alternative venue if the planned host city cannot host the talks.

China has kept in place strict Coronavirus measures such as temporary lockdowns that have since been relaxed in many other countries.

Canadian Environment Minister Steven Guilbeault stressed the urgent need for action to preserve nature.

He said in a statement that up to one million species were threatened with extinction worldwide and the world cannot afford to wait any
longer for global action on nature protection. (
