The U.N. secretariat for the Convention on Biological Diversity and China's environment ministry said in separate statements that the meeting will be held in December in Montreal, where the secretariat is based.
The biodiversity summit is similar to the more well-known U.N. climate summit. Countries that have joined a global agreement on preserving the world's plant and animal species meet regularly to try to achieve the goals laid out in the pact.
The meeting was scheduled to be held in the Chinese city of Kunming earlier this year but was postponed because of the pandemic.
China will continue to serve as president of the upcoming summit and the theme and logo will remain unchanged, the environment ministry and the U.N. secretariat said.
