Biodiversity is the variety of life on earth, in all its forms and interactions. It is the result of evolution, natural processes, and human influence. It involves diversity of genes within species, diversity of individual species within communities, as well as diversity of communities within ecosystems.
In recent years, our planet has witnessed a decline in the variety of life. This biodiversity loss (which is driven by many factors, such as the exponential growth of human population, the fast urbanization, and the irresponsible use of resources) is expected to worsen if no thorough, systemic, and systematic actions are taken. Therefore, mainstreaming biodiversity is becoming a mandatory task for an urgent restoration of the natural ecosystems, and consequently the achievement of steady economic growths as well as humankind prosperity.
The International conference on Biodiversity: Challenges and perspectives is organized to provide a platform for scientists, researchers, and experts from the academic, government, and industrial sectors as well as from international organizations to share their experiences and insights on biodiversity mainstreaming across key sectors. The conference is also aiming to discuss the latest advances regarding the theories, technologies, and trends addressing the challenges of biodiversity.
