About the theme
Connecting Systems, Disciplines and Stakeholders is the theme of ICCB because the effective maintenance and restoration of Earth’s biological diversity requires an integrated approach to conservation. Only through the integration of systems, disciplines, and stakeholders can we effectively slow and reverse the continued loss of biodiversity.
