Highlights of the 7th Trondheim Biodiversity Conference

Daily highlights and pictures from the recent biodiversity conference in Trondheim, Norway, are now available

Since the first Trondheim Conference held in 1993, the world population has grown by 25 %, the total GDP by 75 % and world trade has tripled. Despite positive achievements, loss of biodiversity along with global warming is undermining human wellbeing, especially that of the poor and vulnerable. The Trondheim Conference in 2013 explored how to cut development pathways towards a sustainable society by aligning policy, business, economy and ecology across borders, scales and systems. The conference was attended by invited delegates from around the world. Daily summaries and photos can be found here. Speakers' presentations are also available.
