2nd NetBiome-CSA International Conference BOOSTING BIODIVERSITY RESEARCH COOPERATION: A NetBiome Roadmap for European (sub)Tropical Overseas

Contributed by: EurOcean

The NetBiome-CSA partnership will travel to the European Parliament on 6 April to showcase how ORs and OCTs can advance biodiversity conservation in support of sustainable development. It will also focus on the next steps of a partnership that has found its niche.
Hosting over 70% of Europe´s species diversity, the Outermost Regions (ORs) and Overseas Countries and Territories (OCTs) of Europe have a special role in advancing biodiversity conservation in support of sustainable development. This is the message which will be highlighted by the partners of NetBiome-CSA at the European Parliament on the afternoon of April 6th, 2016 (3pm to 6pm).

The International Conference “BOOSTING BIODIVERSITY RESEARCH COOPERATION: A NetBiome Roadmap for European (sub)Tropical Overseas”, hosted by Ricardo Serrão Santos MEP, Vice-Chair of the EP Intergroup on “Climate Change, Biodiversity and Sustainable Development", will highlight the achievements of previously funded NetBiome projects. Key results and achievements of the NetBiome-CSA project itself will also be presented, with a particular focus on the strategic policy recommendations and research priorities emerging from the work carried out with the participation of more than 150 stakeholders.

This will be a unique opportunity to discuss, with experts and policy makers, the next steps for research on (sub)tropical biodiversity in support of sustainable development in ORs and in OCTs.
