What is the CBD? GYBN #YouthSpeak

The Convention on Biological Diversity, CBD for short is a global environmental agreement. It was adopted in 1992, and it brings together almost all countries of the world to protect biodiversity.
Under the CBD, the countries agreed to ensure that biodiversity is conserved, sustainably used, and that benefits arising from the use of genetic resources are being shared equitably.
Every two years, representatives from national governments come together for a two-week meeting called the Conference of Parties (COP) to discuss how the CBD can get implemented – and for this, they create COP decisions.
However, implementation depends on the willingness of national governments. If governments do not want to do something or don’t have the resources, the CBD can’t force them.
Thus it is important that civil society – including youth – apply pressure on governments to take action on these globally agreed policy frameworks.
This is where GYBN comes in. We are the official youth constituency for the CBD, and we bring youth voices together to influence the process of global policymaking.
Join our vibrant youth movement and help us to shape the next global biodiversity framework.

Salut tout le monde! Aujourd’hui, nous voulions vous parler de la Convention sur la diversité biologique.
La Convention sur la diversité biologique, la CDB, est un accord environnemental mondial. Il a été adopté en 1992 et il rassemble presque tous les pays du monde pour protéger la biodiversité
Dans le cadre de la CDB, les pays sont convenus de veiller à ce que la biodiversité soit conservée, utilisée de manière durable et que les avantages découlant de l’utilisation des ressources génétiques soient partagés équitablement.
Tous les deux ans, des représentants des gouvernements nationaux se réunissent pour une réunion de deux semaines appelée la Conférence des Parties (COP) pour discuter de la façon dont la CDB peut être mise en œuvre – et pour cela, ils créent des décisions de la COP.
Cependant, la mise en œuvre dépend de la volonté des gouvernements nationaux. Si les gouvernements ne veulent pas faire quelque chose ou n’ont pas les ressources, la CDB ne peut pas les forcer.
Il est donc important que la société civile – y compris les jeunes – fasse pression sur les gouvernements pour qu’ils agissent sur ces cadres stratégiques convenus à l’échelle mondiale.
C’est là que GYBN intervient. Nous sommes la circonscription officielle des jeunes pour la CDB, et nous rassemblons les voix des jeunes pour influencer le processus d’élaboration des politiques mondiales.
Rejoignez notre dynamique mouvement des jeunes et aidez-nous à façonner le prochain cadre mondial de la biodiversité.

¡Hola a todos! Hoy queríamos hablarles del Convenio sobre la Diversidad Biológica.
El Convenio sobre la Diversidad Biológica, abreviado CDB, es un acuerdo medioambiental mundial. Se adoptó en 1992 y reúne a casi todos los países del mundo para proteger la biodiversidad.
En el marco del CDB, los países acordaron garantizar la conservación de la biodiversidad, su uso sostenible y el reparto equitativo de los beneficios derivados del uso de los recursos genéticos.
Cada dos años, los representantes de los gobiernos nacionales se reúnen en un encuentro de dos semanas llamado Conferencia de las Partes (COP) para debatir cómo se puede aplicar el CDB, y para ello crean las decisiones de la COP.
Sin embargo, la aplicación depende de la voluntad de los gobiernos nacionales. Si los gobiernos no quieren hacer algo o no tienen los recursos necesarios, el CDB no puede obligarlos.
Por eso es importante que la sociedad civil -incluida la juventud- presione a los gobiernos para que tomen medidas en relación con estos marcos políticos acordados a nivel mundial.
Aquí es donde entra la GYBN. Somos el grupo oficial de jóvenes del CDB y reunimos las voces de los jóvenes para influir en el proceso de elaboración de políticas mundiales.
Únete a nuestro vibrante movimiento juvenil y ayúdanos a dar forma al próximo marco global de biodiversidad.
