CAFF 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. The Congress will be held in Rovaniemi, Finland on October 9-11, 2018, and will build upon the success of the first Congress, held in Norway in 2014.
CAFF encourages individuals and organizations to provide abstracts, organize sessions and submit posters that will encourage a dialogue on Arctic biodiversity among scientists, indigenous peoples, policy makers, government officials, students, industry representatives and others.
Please submit proposals for presentations, posters and/or sessions that address the Arctic Biodiversity Assessment recommendations and implementation actions by March 30, 2018.
