The Arctic Biodiversity Congress, December 2-4, 2014

First call for program content!  

The Conservation of Arctic Flora and Fauna (CAFF), the biodiversity Working Group of the Arctic Council, is seeking individuals and organisations to provide presentations, organise sessions and submit posters that will encourage a dialogue on Arctic biodiversity among scientists, indigenous peoples, policy makers, government officials, northerners and industry representatives at the Arctic Biodiversity Congress.

The Arctic Biodiversity Congress will be held in Trondheim, Norway on December 2-4, 2014. The purpose of the Congress is to promote the conservation and sustainable use of Arctic biodiversity through dialogue among scientists, indigenous peoples, policy-makers, government officials, industry representatives and civil society. The Congress is also a key response to the Arctic Biodiversity Assessment (ABA).

Congress themes:
  1. Climate change: Arctic biodiversity, resilience and adaptation
  2. Mainstreaming biodiversity: linking Arctic ecosystems to society
  3. Understanding cumulative effects and managing impacts on biodiversity
