Date and Time
10 October 2014 13:15 - 14:45
Evidence and recommendations regarding the role of biodiversity in the post 2015 process related to Sustainable Devleopment Goals and the implementation of them will be discussed in this side event. A sharper focus on integrating biodiversity is essential in the post-2015 goal-setting and implementation process. This is critical to help buffer against ecological impacts and pressures in the face of growing human needs. We also expect more environmental and societal surprises, because of the intricate social and economic connections of today’s globalised world, and the physical processes of global climate change. Thus, we must maintain the world’s capacity to buffer these changes, so that humans can adapt, and where necessary to respond in sustainable and transformative ways.
