This exciting conference, co-hosted by IUCN, is fast approaching. Register before May 23 and make sure you join us for this dynamic international forum:

Ecosystems, Economy and Society:
How large-scale restoration can stimulate sustainable development

For two days, conference speakers and attendees will discuss the potential of large-scale restoration of degraded ecosystems to further socio-economic development alongside the recovery of ecosystem function, continuity and biodiversity.  

How can restoring forests improve livelihoods? How can repairing degraded oceans create new jobs? Where can the money to accomplish these tasks come from?  This conference will provide a platform for dialogue among scientists, policy-makers, private sector, NGOs and donors on these and other key questions.  Case studies of success will be presented, "to demonstrate what it takes to get things done."  

These conversations will not happen in a vacum.  Numerous global committments and challenges have restoration goals built within them, including the CBD Biodiversity targets, the Bonn Challenge, and potentially the forthcoming UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).  Discussions at the Ecosystems, Economy and Society conference should help frame new goals, like the UN's SDGs, and inform implementation of existing goals.

The Ecosystems, Economy and Society conference is co-hosted by the Veolia Environment Institute, with the US National Research Council Water Science and Technology Board, the Agence Française de Développement and the International Union for Conservation of Nature, under the patronage of the National Academy of Sciences and in association with Conservation International, UNCCD, WRI, the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation and Civil Society Mission of the French Embassy.
