Biodiversity and Health in the Face of Climate Change
Challenges, opportunities and evidence gaps
This joint European conference in Bonn will bring together experts from science, policy and practice to highlight and discuss the importance of biodiversity's contribution to human health in the face of climate change. The aim of the conference is to increase knowledge, share experiences and foster natur-based solutions to meet the challenges of climate change and health issues.
Latest scientific findings on the impacts of climate change on European biodiversity and links to human health will be discussed. Furthermore, the implementation of nature-based solutions towards health and climate goals within cities and their surroundiing areas will be outlined. Interactive sessions will focus on case studies of successful demonstration projects and lessons learned. Resulting discussions will lead to recommendations for creating synergies between ongoing policy processes, scientific programmes and practical implementation.
Organizers:European Conference hosted by the German Federal Agency for Nature Conservation (BfN) and the European Network of Heads of Nature Conservation Agencies (ENCA) in co-operation with the Helmholtz-Centre for Environmental Research (UFZ) / German Centre for Integrative Biodiversity Research (iDiv).
