In your opinion, how should the participatory approach be made a reality in the field of biodiversity and natural resource conservation? And what precautions should be taken?
The Virtual Conservation Hub serves as an entry point to the West Africa Biodiversity Forum. You can promote your project by presenting your own efforts, achievements and activities in the hub.
The Hub seeks to build narratives and emphasize practical outcomes by focusing on the transition points and transformation needed to achieve the goals of Agenda 2063 and the SDGs 2030.
Discuss how synergies can be developed at different levels of (sub)national and local government to achieve the biodiversity targets as well as the Sustainable Development Goals, and how collaborations and partnerships with non-state actors can be formed throughout this Decade of Action.
Discuss the coordinated efforts needed to halt biodiversity loss, reverse ecological degradation, combat climate change, and ensure human well-being.
Discuss alternative approaches to rethinking the economic paradigm that recognizes biodiversity as a cornerstone of (economic) sustainability, human well-being and prosperity.
Discuss how we might change the narrative and envision a world where the protection and sustainable use of biodiversity is prioritized and the well-being of future generations is assured.
