Biodiversity governance workshop

February 13 @ 6:15 pm - 8:30 pm

Biodiversity is decreasing at an alarming rate and it is one of the biggest threats mankind faces today. But what is being done about it? How does biodiversity governance on an international level work? What mechanisms exist? And who are the important actors? On the 13th of February you will have the chance to hear all about this from two experts from the PBL Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency. They will give you insight in the international biodiversity governance system, followed by a great interactive workshop on views on nature and governance. Everyone can attend, no background knowledge is expected.

Marcel Kok is Environment and Development Programme Leader and Senior Researcher at the PBL Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency. His focus is on biodiversity governance strategies and scenario analysis of global environmental issues. Currently he works on mainstreaming biodiversity, bottom-up governance strategies and future biodiversity scenarios.
