Samoa highlights biodiversity conservation action at COP15

Samoa has highlighted some of the key steps they have taken to conserve biodiversity in the Pacific island nation, demonstrating the kind of tangible action and leadership required to halt nature loss, and stop the collapse of ecosystems.
In addressing the High Level Segment of the 15th Conference of the Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD COP15) in Montreal, Canada, Samoa’s Minister of Natural Resources and Environment, Hon. Toeolesulusulu Cedric Schuster, reaffirmed Samoa’s commitments for the endorsement and implementation of the post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework, currently being negotiated.
“We call for bold commitments from the global community to strengthen cooperation and elevate our actions to significantly reduce and reverse biodiversity loss. Without a doubt, we will continue to face new challenges as events around the world present new threats to environmental wellbeing, biological diversity and human livelihood,” Hon. Toeolesulusulu said.
“Samoa as a member of our Pacific family is evermore convinced that it is only through joint work with other regions under the guidance of the Convention, can we achieve our common goal in shaping the future of biodiversity, people and planet.”
