GLF’s Biodiversity Digital Conference couldn’t have been more timely. As countries grapple with ripples and resurgences of the zoonotic COVID-19 virus, the global community is taking stock of its failures to prevent drastic biodiversity loss, and setting a critical agenda to do better in the coming decade. The linkages between the ways we treat other species and our common home, and the health and wellbeing of human communities, become more apparent every day.
This report provides an essential overview of the conference, which centered biodiversity in global, national, regional and community-level efforts to ‘build back better’ for human, animal and ecological health.
