Global target 18 of the recently adopted Kunming-Montreal Global Biodiversity Framework aims to identify by 2025, and eliminate, phase out or reform incentives, including subsidies, harmful for biodiversity, in a proportionate, just, fair, effective and equitable way, while substantially and progressively reducing them by at least 500 billion United States dollars per year by 2030, starting with the most harmful incentives, and scale up positive incentives for the conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity. The EU's 2030 Biodiversity Strategy also articulates the ambition to promote tax systems and pricing that reflect environmental costs, including biodiversity loss. With these developments in mind, the conference will look at existing economic incentives such as taxes, subsidies, and market-based approaches that affect biodiversity. It will also critically examine the variety of economic instruments that offer potential to promote biodiversity conservation. Limited funding for travel and accommodation is available for presenters whose institution cannot cover the costs of participation.
