Leading organizations in the natural capital space will convene in Madrid in the framework of the Natural Capital Week from 4th-7th November. They will collaborate in the organisation of a week of events, discussions and networking designed to enhance business involvement in nature conservation and its sustainable use.

Events scheduled aim to contribute to the objective of the Action Plan for Nature and People launched at the United Nations (UN) Biodiversity Conference in 2018. 

This agenda aims to catalyse actions from all sectors and economic and social actors in support of biodiversity, and support the adoption of an ambitious post-2020 global biodiversity framework at the fifteenth meeting of the Conference of the Parties (COP15) of the Convention on Biological Diversity taking place in Kunming (China) 2020. 

This New Deal for Nature and People will, in its turn, be a basis for the post-2020 EU biodiversity strategy.
