World Biodiversity Forum

The first of its kind, the World Bio­di­ver­si­ty Fo­rum will bring to­geth­er lead­ing re­searchers, ear­ly ca­reer re­searchers, prac­ti­tion­ers, rep­re­sen­ta­tives from dif­fer­ent sec­tors and de­ci­sion-mak­ers to discuss the kind of fu­ture we want (or do not want) for bio­di­ver­si­ty.

The World Biodiversity Forum is being held from 23 – 28 February 2020 in Davos, Switzerland.  Davos is Eu­rope’s high­est town, lo­cat­ed at 1560 m above sea lev­el.

Chang­ing Bio­di­ver­si­ty

  • Il­lus­trate the re­sponse of bio­di­ver­si­ty and ecosys­tem func­tion to en­vi­ron­men­tal change
  • Ex­plore the im­pacts of (an­thro­pogenic) dri­vers of change and their in­ter­ac­tions and feed­backs with ecosys­tems.

Out­come of the con­fer­ence

A state­ment, recog­nis­ing the ex­is­ten­tial and eco­nom­ic im­por­tance of bio­di­ver­si­ty and ecosys­tem func­tion as the ba­sis of hu­man ex­is­tence, and the im­por­tance of bio­di­ver­si­ty and ecosys­tems to achieve sus­tain­abil­i­ty, chart­ing the way for­ward to achieve a “New Deal for Na­ture”.
