The Brazilian perspectives for the Post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework (BIO2020), organized by ICLEI South America, the São Paulo State Government, Regions4, Expertise France, CETESB and Fundação Florestal, took place from 4 to 6 February 2020, at the Infrastructure and Environment Secretariat, in São Paulo, Brazil. The event was attended by more than 200 delegates, including high level delegates such as Governors, Mayors and heads of institutions, representing different Brazilian territories, municipalities, states, metropolitan regions and biosphere reserves, as well as representatives from the private sector, academia and civil society, such as the youth and traditional communities. BIO2020 was an important milestone on the global roadmap for local and subnational governments contributing to the Post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework. Its aim was to formulate their contributions from the Brazilian perspective on key points related to the Post-2020 Framework. The event ended with the signing of a strong charter, the Carta de São Paulo, and all 26 Brazilian state capital cities, as well as São Paulo State, committing to signing up to CitiesWithNature.
