Mountain Biodiversity Day

The one-day event offers a platform for discussions between experts and representatives from mountain regions all over the world, working in the field of biodiversity, with a strong focus on mountains. The main goal is to share experiences, identify shared challenges and showcase best-practice examples and solutions from various regional perspectives. As an outcome of the event, a Joint message on the importance of protecting global mountain biodiversity will be developed to be then taken forward to major global events such as the IUCN World Conservation Congress and the COP15 of the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD).

The different perspectives will be covered during three successive segments:  

1. Global mountains (thematic sessions on key biodiversity areas in mountain regions, global drivers for loss of mountain biodiversity and tools for conservation)
2. High level segment on mountains in the Post-2020 process (with CBD focal points and representatives of the Alpine and Carpathian Conventions)
3. Alps (thematic sessions on current threats to biodiversity in the Alps and strategies to protect biodiversity for future generations
