Describe the results/achievements of the actions taken: 
Throughout 2019, IUCN constituents have been following the process of development of a new Global Biodiversity Framework for the post-2020 period. Numerous activities and results can be mentioned: participation in the CBD thematic consultations on post-2020; submission of IUCN inputs to the post-2020 process (see: https://www.iucn.org/theme/global-policy/our-work/convention-biological-diversity-cbd/post-2020-global-biodiversity-framework ); participation in the official and other meetings (including Open-ended Working Group on post-2020 and the CBD subsidiary body meetings) and distribution of IUCN position papers, information briefs and others; organisation of side events (e.g. IUCN evolving position, Evidence base for achieving species conservation and restoration - STAR and Three Global conditions at SBSTTA23 in November 2019), among others.
What challenges/obstacles have been encountered in the implementation of this Resolution and how were they overcome : 
Lack of a dedicated source of funding to finance work around post-2020 inputs (publication and distribution of briefs for example) as well as to fund staff time and participation at the many events and meetings on the post-2020 framework where IUCN, members and partners can have a positive impact. Most of the funding available is by way of projects which are finite and have other limitations.
Briefly describe what future actions are needed for the implementation of this Resolution: 
Development and dissemination of more background materials which put forward the scientific base as well as the practical applications of science-based targets and area-based conservation measures. This should ideally be accompanied by a global communications and awareness raising campaign.
