The forum aims to be a meeting place to share knowledge, approaches and solutions, among scientists, policy – makers, and the civil society for mainstreaming biodiversity especially focusing on agriculture, fisheries, forestry and tourism.
The objectives of the 3rd Science for Biodiversity Forum are:
1. To discuss and share biodiversity mainstreaming challenges and solutions, with a focus on agriculture, fisheries, forests, and tourism, based on current scientific findings, approaches and the experiences of stakeholders, including COP 13 delegates.
2. To open the dialogue to enhance the technical and scientific cooperation for the replication of best practices and capacity-building on mainstreaming.
3. To provide an open space for debate on science and research among scientists and policy – makers, and alerting scientists on how to communicate to policy-makers and the civil society and scientists to policy and society needs.
Under the overarching theme of “Mainstreaming biodiversity for well-being: Contributions from Science to Policy” the Forum will provide opportunity for dialogue: 1) Challenging conceptual discussions and realities on sustainability and mainstreaming biodiversity in selected sectors; 2) Showcasing success stories on selected topics related to mainstreaming biodiversity and the role of science, different types of knowledge and approaches in these case studies, and their possibility of replication; 3) Improve the understanding on the strengths, limitations and the use of decision-support tools such as scenarios, modeling, data, combined social- and ecosystem approach, and on how best to communicate best practices.
