Event - Biodiversity Conservation and Ecosystem Management Conference

The 8th International Conference on Biodiversity Conservation and Ecosystem Management will take place on November 12-13, 2019 in Tokyo, Japan. Biodiversity Congress is a global platform to discuss and learn about Ecology and its associated fields, Evolution of Species, Plant & Animal Biodiversity, Biodiversity Management, Fauna & Flora, Biodiversity & Food Security, Conservation of Endangered Species, Marine Biodiversity, Forestry, and Sustainable Energy Development.

This event is focusing on Food Security and the theme is "Variety of Species Innovates Variety of Research".

Why to attend?

People from around the world are looking forward to build an Eco-friendly world and they are doing well with their research on species and extinctions. This conference gathers researchers from around the world to discuss species diversity in the context of a changing environment. It will also explore stratiegies to conserve endangered species.

Target Audience:
  • Ecologists
  • Environmental Scientists
  • Biologists
  • Forestry Scientists
  • Marine Scientists

Across scales from genes to species, landscapes and biomes, biodiversity is an important resource for humanity. It is the key for a broad range of services provided by ecosystems. Biodiversity helps regulate the nutrient cycle, water (e.g. floods) and mitigates impacts of climate change. Biodiversity is also of direct importance for human well-being and for cultural and values including recreation. The provisioning of clean water and diverse food supply makes it vital for all people.

Food security faces significant challenges due to population growth, poverty, globalization, climate change and other factors. Supplying healthy food to all citizens is crucial for global development - to reach it, not only food production but also equitable access to food for all people must be improved substantially. Biodiversity loss and global food security are hence two major challenges of our time. Linking these two areas from a research perspective, and seeking synergies between them is likely to generate multiple benefits for social, ecological and economic development.
