Could this new fund restore global biodiversity?

Words by Abi Scaife

A brand new global biodiversity fund has launched in Vancouver.

Great! What’s the story?

The new Global Biodiversity Framework Fund (GBFF) was launched at the GEF Assembly in Vancouver - and both Canada and the United Kingdom have agreed to contribute funding.

Initial contributions include 200 million Canadian dollars from Canada and 10 million pounds from the United Kingdom.

What does this mean?

The fund will go towards fostering and protecting biodiversity across the world. While other countries are still putting together their initial financial contribution, this fund is promising for the future of the world’s biodiversity.
