World Biodiversity Forum

23 - 28 February 2020

Davos, Switzerland - Congress Centre

The Fo­rum will pro­vide a plat­form for ex­change, cov­er­ing a wide range of per­spec­tives, and cap­tur­ing a di­ver­si­ty of vi­sions. With this, it aims to re­de­fine and set the agen­da for bio­di­ver­si­ty as a fo­cal point over the next 10 years in cur­rent themes and top­ics across sec­tors.

In this, the Fo­rum sup­ports the “New Deal for Na­ture” to be forged by the Con­ven­tion on Bi­o­log­i­cal Di­ver­si­ty at the end of 2020. It is aligned with Sus­tain­able De­vel­op­ment Goals and achieve­ment of which will re­quire the in­volve­ment of all sec­tors/so­ci­etal ac­tors, so­ci­etal con­sen­sus and col­lec­tive search for so­lu­tions to con­serve bio­di­ver­si­ty.

How to contribute and participate

We ac­cept pro­pos­als for oral and poster con­tri­bu­tions for the World Bio­di­ver­si­ty Fo­rum. Con­tri­bu­tions should fit the themes of the con­fer­ence, and may ei­ther be pre­sent­ed as part of the the­mat­ic ses­sions (see the spe­cif­ic ses­sion for more in­for­ma­tion), or in open ses­sions. Poster or oral con­tri­bu­tions pre­sen­ta­tions are con­sid­ered as be­ing equal, and will have the same sta­tus at the con­fer­ence.

We look for­ward to re­ceiv­ing your con­tri­bu­tions to the World Bio­di­ver­si­ty Fo­rum.
