World Biodiversity Forum 2020

Co-organised by bioDISCOVERY and the UZH Research Priority Program 'Global Change and Biodiversity', the World Bio­di­ver­si­ty Fo­rum is con­ceived as a plat­form for ex­change, cov­er­ing a wide range of per­spec­tives, and cap­tur­ing a di­ver­si­ty of vi­sions.

A state­ment, recog­nis­ing the ex­is­ten­tial and eco­nom­ic im­por­tance of bio­di­ver­si­ty and ecosys­tem func­tion as the ba­sis of hu­man ex­is­tence, and the im­por­tance of bio­di­ver­si­ty and ecosys­tems to achieve sus­tain­abil­i­ty, chart­ing the way for­ward to achieve a “New Deal for Na­ture”.
