Organized by: Future Earth

Biodiversity is declining at an unprecedented rate, threatening the prosperity of the more-than-human world. Canada supports a globally significant diversity of ecosystems and boasts rich Indigenous knowledge which is promising to lead an integrated pathway towards the vision of ‘human living in harmony with nature’. With enhanced ambition in conservation policies and practices, Canada can contribute significantly to global biodiversity and climate change mitigation. The panel will center the discussion around the progresses, challenges, and potential solutions for biodiversity conservation in Canada. A policy recommendation report will be launched to inform feasible nature-centered pathways for green transformation in Canada
