2nd International Conference on Biodiversity in the Congo Basin - Challenges for the future

March 6-10, 2023

Kisangani, DR Congo

Centre de Surveillance de la Biodiversité



This second conference will address themes linking biodiversity, climate change and public health: biodiversity and food security, valorization of ecosystem services, biodiversity and climate change, sustainable agriculture, developing and facilitating supra-national and interregional cooperation in scientific research, new approaches to conservation, sustainable exploitation of natural resources, forestry and biodiversity, industrial development and biodiversity, availability of official environmental data, urban biodiversity, and policy-making. Links to the post-2020 global biodiversity framework of the Convention on Biological Diversity and to the Sustainable Development Goals will be highlighted and discussed. Adding these and possibly other new themes to the conference program will attract a diverse and cross-pollinating audience.

If you feel you can contribute to one of these themes, please submit an abstract for a poster or oral presentation on this website. You will have the option to propose a workshop as well. If you would have a suggestion for an extra topic please contact congobiodiv23scientcom[@]naturalsciences.be as soon as possible and submit an abstract describing the additional theme.
