Sydney to Host World’s First Global Nature Positive Summit (FED)


The Federal and New South Wales Labor governments today announced that Sydney will be the host for the first Global Nature Positive Summit in early October 2024. Attached press release.

The Summit will bring together delegates from around the world including ministers, environment groups, First Nations peoples, business, scientists and community leaders, to consider how to supercharge investment in projects that repair nature.

The Global Biodiversity Framework agreed to by 196 countries at the United Nations biodiversity conference last year was described as the ‘Paris agreement for nature’. It set a target of US$200 billion per year of funding to be spent on nature repair by 2030.

Protecting and repairing nature is a big job. Government funding plays a critical role, but we can’t do it alone.
