Abstract

Global biodiversity targets have been lauded for spurring conservation action at the national scale as part of efforts to halt global biodiversity decline (1). However, the scope and scale of biodiversity loss and its drivers do not abide by human-made borders. Transboundary environmental issues, such as watershed, ecosystem, and migratory species management, introduce multifaceted and complex problems both within and across (e.g., rural and urban, marine and terrestrial, political and regulatory) jurisdictions. For global conservation agreements to succeed, governments and institutions must coordinate and collaborate across these borders. The Convention on Biological Diversity Kunming-Montreal Global Biodiversity Framework (GBF) can be leveraged to support and incentivize solutions to complex shared resource challenges. Unfortunately, the GBF currently lacks explicit targets for transboundary management (2).
