The Primary Forest Alliance was launched on December 10, with about 80 people in attendance, and presentations from Stand.earth (also representing Amazonia for Life 80×25), Earth Insight, Wild Heritage and Awi’nakola. We were extremely active at COP 15, with 8 side events and 3 press conferences (a picture of our PFA press conference is attached), and most importantly we worked very hard together, advocating for including ecosystem integrity as a core principle in the Global Biodiversity Framework, and for including explicit recognition of Indigenous territories in Target 3. We were successful on both counts, and although the Global Biodiversity Framework is not perfect, the strong focus on ecosystem integrity makes it robust, and the outcome could have been much, much worse!
