BiodiverCities by 2030 is a joint initiative of the World Economic Forum and the Alexander von Humboldt Institute, championed by the Government of Colombia. This initiative aims to support city governments, businesses and citizens, to enable cities to live in harmony with nature by 2030.
The initiative brings together multidisciplinary expertize, combines existing initiatives and surfaces innovative solutions to promote sustainable, inclusive and nature-positive urban development at a global scale. To deliver on its objectives, the initiative has curated a high-level commission of experts and practitioners from the public and private sectors, academia and civil society – the Global Commission on BiodiverCities by 2030-to combine insights and co-create a forward-looking perspective on nature-positive cities. Artificial intelligence and crowdsourcing technologies have also been set as key tools for the initiative through the Forum’s Strategic Intelligence and UpLink platforms to pool the latest innovations and conceptual developments linking biodiversity and urban development.
This report was developed as an output of the BiodiverCities by 2030 initiative and sets out:

  • The urgency of addressing cities’untenable relationship with nature.
  • The opportunity to prioritize naturepositive interventions and investments to fight cities’ challenges.
  • A clear path for city leaders to embrace the BiodiverCities by 2030 vision and increase urban competitiveness and liveability through nature.

This report builds on the work of the World Economic Forum’s New Nature Economy Report series, which identified nature-related economic risks (affecting more than half the world’s GDP) and opportunities from nature-positive pathways, including an increase in business value by $10.1 trillion and the creation of 395 million jobs by 2030.

As part of the support for the implementation by the Member States of the United Nations (UN), the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the Decentralized Territorial Communities (DTCs) of Cameroon participate this year 2022 in the development of a voluntary report, under the aegis of United Cities and Local Governments (UCLG).
As a reminder, the seventeen (17) Sustainable Development Goals to “save the world” actually indicate the way forward to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all beings on earth. They respond to the global challenges we face, including those related to poverty, inequality, climate, environmental degradation, prosperity, peace and justice. These goals are interconnected and must all be achieved by 2030.
This universal call to action to eradicate poverty, protect the planet and improve the lives of all people everywhere, while opening up opportunities for them for the future, was adopted in 2015 by the United Nations as part of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, which sets out a fifteen (15) year plan to achieve these goals.
The annual SDG implementation reports provide an overview of global efforts to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals. They highlight areas where progress has been made and where further action is needed. They are prepared by the Department of Economic and Social Affairs of the United Nations Secretariat, with the contribution of international and regional organizations, United Nations agencies, funds and programmes. Several national statisticians and experts from civil society and academia are also contributing to their preparation.
The Government of the Republic of Cameroon, through the Ministry of Economy, Planning and Regional Development (MINEPAT), with the support of the United Nations system, launched since the end of 2015, the process of inclusive localization of the SDGs in Cameroon. The Government aimed to conduct this process in the most participatory manner possible, including all development actors, particularly at the national level (central and decentralized public administrations, technical and financial partners, United Nations agencies, civil society, the private sector, trade unions, decentralized local authorities, youth) and grassroots populations.
The Draft National Report 2022 under the auspices of UCLG aims to support local government associations, such as the United Municipalities and Cities of Cameroon (CVUC), interested in strengthening their participation in the Voluntary National Review (VNR) process
at the United Nations, with the aim of developing a local authorities’ own report on the SDGs. This report, which complements the national report prepared by the Government of Cameroon, will be presented to the United Nations this year and sent to the High Level Political Forum.
At the end of this report, UCLG’s main expectation is to note greater ownership of the SDGs at the local level and better participation of the SDCs in the implementation of the SDGs.
