– Rethinking the Protection of Biodiversity in an Era of Global Change


Nature conservation is paramount in an era of growing concern about climate change and the loss of biodiversity. In order to achieve the sustainable development goals proposed by the United Nations, we will need to strengthen our efforts to conserve nature. These efforts will be important to reduce social inequalities, provide a quality of life conducive to the well-being of Quebecers, and ensure new jobs aimed at diversifying local and regional economies. Based on recent findings highlighted by the international community, stakeholders will discuss strategies to meet provincial and international targets on ecological, economic and socio-cultural levels. This exchange will also highlight the various impacts and spin-offs of the efforts to be deployed and reflect on development paths for the future.
