ACB Attends World Biodiversity Forum in Davos, Switzerland

The World Biodiversity Forum was held in Davos, Switzerland last 23 - 28 February 2020.

The Fo­rum provided 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.

The Forum is attended by Jerome Alano representing the Biodiversity Information Management unit of the ASEAN Centre for Biodiversity. Mr. Alano was invited to participate in the Forum's workshop on developing Remote Sensing-Enabled EBV Roadmap.
