COP 15, Montreal, 2022

The United Nations Biodiversity Conference will run from 7-19 December 2022.

“In delivering on biodiversity, we deliver on climate, on pollution, on the UN Decade of Ecosystem Restoration, and on the food and energy system transformation. So let us ensure that this COP will be remembered as the moment we finally set our societies and economies on the path to rebuilding the biodiversity upon which we all rely.” – Inger Andersen, UN Under-Secretary General and UNEP Executive Director.


The COP 15 conference will be held in Montreal, Quebec, the seat of the UN CBD Secretariat. COP 15 will focus on protecting nature and halting biodiversity loss around the world. The Government of Canada’s priority is to ensure that COP 15 is a success for nature.
