As the world faces the pressing challenge of climate change, international forums like the United Nations Climate Change Conferences play a pivotal role in shaping global responses. The COP15 conference holds particular significance as it aims to establish a post-2020 global biodiversity framework. In this context, the participation of diverse stakeholders, including non-governmental organizations like the Xufancheng Culture Study Center, becomes crucial for fostering dialogue and collaboration. Drawing insights from Part 1 and Part 2 of our study, we explore the perspectives and contributions of the Xufancheng Culture Study Center as an observer at UN COP15.

Serving as a platform for cultural exchange and environmental advocacy, the center brings unique perspectives to the conference discussions. By observing negotiations, attending side events, and networking with delegates, the center gains valuable insights into the complexities of biodiversity conservation and sustainable development.

It highlighted indigenous knowledge systems, traditional practices, and community-based conservation efforts that promote biodiversity and environmental stewardship. These insights underscore the importance of incorporating traditional ecological knowledge into contemporary conservation strategies—a theme that resonates strongly with the objectives of COP15.
