- Strengthen leadership and engagement;
- Strive for an ambitious Post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework (GBF);
- Propose a China-led multilateral and collaborative Global Biodiversity Fund to be put

- Enhance domestic ecological conservation practices, especially Ecological Conservation Redlining (ECR), during China’s upcoming 14th Five Year Plan (FYP) (2021–2025);
- Increase international cooperation on ways to use knowledge and experience from China’s
ecological protection practices, as a means to further the CBD’s post-2020 objectives;
