Purpose

The Conservation of Arctic Flora and Fauna (CAFF), the biodiversity working group of the Arctic Council, in partnership with the Ministry of the Environment, Finland, is organizing the Arctic Biodiversity Congress, 2018 to promote the conservation and sustainable use of Arctic biodiversity. The Congress is relevant to all who wish to make specific and significant contributions to the conservation of Arctic biodiversity through dialogue among scientists, Indigenous peoples, policy-makers, government officials, industry, students, and civil society.


Goals


Arctic Biodiversity Congress 2014

The Arctic Biodiversity Congress 2018 is the second Arctic Biodiversity Congress and builds on the great success of the Arctic Biodiversity Congress 2014, held in Trondheim, Norway, which brought 450+ leaders, experts, practitioners, from 26 countries together to discuss and advance major conservation issues facing the Arctic and the world. This event received overwhelming positive feedback; a post Congress survey found that respondents rated the event as 4.3/5, or “excellent”, and that there is great anticipation amongst the Arctic science and policy community for the Arctic Biodiversity Congress, 2018
