Political Vision: The 10 Point Plan for financing biodiversity

The 10 Point Plan is a shared political vision for financing biodiversity.



The 10 Point Plan is a non-legally binding political narrative that defines a clear pathway for bridging the global nature finance gap and to manage the significant risks of biodiversity loss to the global economy and public health.

The Political Vision was launched at the UN General Assembly (UNGA 77) on 20 September 2022.

Over 16 countries have signed up to the 10 Point Plan, led by Ecuador, Gabon, Maldives and the UK. It supports global efforts to promote the protection, restoration and sustainable use of nature and agreement of an ambitious post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework at CBD COP 15 in Montreal.

The plan demonstrates the role that all sources of finance have to play, including domestic, international, public and private. It has a particular focus on how international, public finance can support developing countries to accelerate the transition to become nature positive.
