Blue-Green Biodiversity at the World Biodiversity Forum

June 26, 2022 - July 1, 2022, 9.00 am - 6.00 pm

Congress Center Davos, Switzerland

The World Biodiversity Forum brings together researchers across all disciplines of biodiversity science with practitioners and societal actors in a forum that offers inspiration and examples for actions and solutions to conserve biodiversity, and set us on a path towards transformation for sustainability. The BGB Research Initiative led by Eawag and WSL researchers organized two sessions.

  • The session FRW2 (part a, part b), Research and implementation to restore and protect Blue-Green biodiversity, aims at promoting conservation tools and stakeholder integration, and at stimulating collaborations and exchanges of perspectives of research, implementation and policy across blue-green (water-land) ecosystems.
  • The session CIT1 (part a, part b), Towards Blue Green Cities: nature-based solutions for enhancing urban ecology, promotes scientific discourse on research related to blue-green infrastructure (BGI) in urban areas, with the overarching goal of enhancing BGI’s sustainability and their role in maintaining ecosystem services for the environment and society.
