Information brief

Information Document on the Global Species Action Plan

At the OEWG-3, the first information document on the Global Species Action Plan was submitted, calling for the development of the GSAP and a programme of work on species conservation under the new Post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework.

Since then, the draft GSAP has been further developed by IUCN, IUCN Commissions, IUCN Member organisations and Partners, in consultation with the Secretariats of the Convention on Biological Diversity, Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora, Convention on the Conservation of Migratory Species of Wild Animals, International Plant Protection Convention, International Whaling Commission, the International Treaty on Plant Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture, Ramsar Convention, World Heritage Convention.

This draft version 7 of GSAP is based on the First draft of the post-2020 GBF issued on 5 July 2021. The GSAP draft will be amended to align with the final GBF text as adopted at CBD COP-15.
