The Summit will focus on the need to accelerate action on biodiversity for sustainable development. HoS/G will work towards developing the post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework to be adopted at the 15th meeting of the Conference of Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity in 2021.

This year, UNGA has also extended its use of the silence procedure and has empowered UNGA President to circulate draft decisions to all Member States at least 72 hours after consulting with the General Committee. If there are no objections raised, such decisions are considered adopted. It is expected that the Omnibus Resolution on “Comprehensive and Coordinated Response to the COVID-19 Pandemic” will be adopted via this mechanism.
