Subthemes and Topic

The Conference theme, “Enriching Biodiversity Inspiring People”, will cover the following sub-themes:

1. Agro-Eco-Edu-Tourism

Program, initiatives, and services that promotes the agricultural products, environmental conservation, and learning packages to increase community’s skills and well-being

2. Biodiversity for All

Biodiversity for All refers to the importance of ensuring that biodiversity is accessible, understandable, and appreciated by all people. This subtheme recognizes that biodiversity is not only valuable for its intrinsic worth but also for the benefits it provides to people, including ecosystem services such as clean air and water, food and medicine, and cultural and recreational opportunities. Emphasizing on promoting equity and inclusivity in biodiversity conservation efforts and ensure that all people can participate in and benefit from these efforts.

3. Biodiversity Literacy

Biodiversity is a complex and dynamic system, and it is essential to understand its components, functions, and interdependencies to effectively conserve and manage it. Biodiversity literacy includes understanding the different levels of biodiversity, such as genetic diversity, species diversity, and ecosystem diversity, as well as the drivers of biodiversity loss, such as habitat destruction, climate change, and invasive species. It also involves recognizing the importance of biodiversity for human well-being, such as providing food, medicine, and other ecosystem services, and the cultural and spiritual significance of biodiversity to different communities.

4. Biodiversity in Practice

"Biodiversity in practice" emphasizes the need for effective and innovative strategies for biodiversity conservation and management that are based on scientific evidence, stakeholder engagement, and best practices. This may include approaches such as ecosystem-based management, spatial planning, and restoration ecology and the integration of biodiversity considerations into other sectors, such as agriculture, forestry, and tourism. This involves promoting sustainable practices that minimize negative impacts on biodiversity while still providing economic benefits to local communities.

5. Biodiversity Engineering

Biodiversity engineering refers to the use of engineering principles and tools to restore, enhance, and manage biodiversity and ecosystem services. It involves the application of engineering approaches to address complex ecological problems, such as habitat degradation, invasive species, and climate change to enhance the ecological resilience and functionality of ecosystems, while also providing benefits to human well-being.
