World Biodiversity Summit Part 1

Last week also marked the inaugural launch of the World Biodiversity Summit, through its pivotal event "Nature-Based Solutions, Finance and Regenerative Agriculture", presenting:


A crucial platform to build ambition loops in climate and biodiversity discussions and propel solutions to the biodiversity crisis.

Experts, policymakers, innovators and investors to tackle how to stimulate resilient food production and security to support global biodiversity.

Examples of how global food systems act as the primary driver of biodiversity loss and how to stimulate the transition towards resilient and nature-positive food systems to reduce pressure on biodiversity and the environment.

The panel discussion informed on several solution-based perspectives, namely regenerating nature through a circular economy and using the power of design to rethink food manufacturing and retailing models.
