The conference is jointly organised with the Blue-Green-Initiative of EAWAG.
Climate change and biodiversity crisis are intricately linked and interdependent and the preservation of our biodiversity requires an integrated approach to both challenges. Urgent policy action is needed to address direct (e.g. land use change, urbanisation, pollution) and indirect drivers (e.g. economic policies, governance systems) to prevent or reverse biodiversity loss, and to allow ecosystems to recover and to be restored.
This requires combining research approaches and methods in innovative ways, working across a broad range of disciplines as well as involving decision-makers.
This convention will stimulate exchanges between researchers, practitioners and policy/decision-makers, in order to foster actionable research and promote implementation of measures to prevent or reverse biodiversity loss.
