The Local Biodiversity Outlooks were created to complement the Global Biodiversity Outlook, the flagship publication of the Convention of Biological Diversity (CBD). Whereas the Global Biodiversity Outlook focuses on the status and trends of biodiversity, the Local Biodiversity Outlook highlights the role of indigenous peoples and local communities in conserving and protecting this biodiversity.

In 2016, Parties welcomed the LBO-1 and requested a second edition to be launched in conjunction with the fifth edition of the Global Biodiversity Outlook in 2020. The LBO-2 was prepared in response to this request, and also focuses on the Aichi Biodiversity Targets for 2020. 

Area-based Conservation Targets

This briefing seeks to bring greater clarity to the intersection between the post-2020 global biodiversity framework and the land and resource rights, collective governance and self-determination of Indigenous Peoples and local communities.

Biodiversity and Finance

This briefing gives an overview of biodiversity finance and makes a case for increasing support to customary rights-holders. It also describes the financial flows driving the destruction on biodiversity, and shows how they harm local people as well as nature.

Rethinking Nature-based Solutions

This briefing looks at key areas in which nature-based solutions need more clarity and rigour if they are to play an effective and transformative role in driving financial and technical support to where it is needed most.
