February 23 – 28 2020, Davos Congress Centre, Switzerland

Join us to explore the future of biodiversity
2020 will see a new global biodiversity framework – «New Deal for Nature» – that will pave the way to achieve the 2050 vision of the Convention on Biological Diversity – «Living in Harmony with Nature». This conference will contribute to this vision by viewing biodiversity through the lens of an Earth system approach; investigate the intertwined impacts of drivers of global environmental change on biodiversity and ecosystems, and highlight the benefits and solutions biodiversity and ecosystems provide to sustainable development.

Main themes of the conference
Understanding the response of biodiversity to environmental change – impacts of drivers, interactions and feedbacks.
Exploring the future of biodiversity – models and scenarios of  biodiversity change, synergies and trade-offs in pathways to  desirable futures.
Highlighting the contribution of biodiversity to human well-being – linking biodiversity, ecosystem function and ecosystem services provision.

Who is organising the forum
The Forum is organised by the international research network bioDISCOVERY, and the University of Zurich Research Priority Programme Global Change and Biodiversity.
