5th European Conference on Biodiversity and Climate Change: Riverine and Coastal Wetlands

The mounting challenges of climate change and the growing urgency for biodiversity conservation have thrust riverine and coastal wetlands into the spotlight. These invaluable ecosystems stand as a bridge between nature and human well-being, providing an unmatched foundation for preserving biodiversity while simultaneously lessening the repercussions of a shifting climate.

Against this backdrop, the 5th European Conference on Biodiversity and Climate Change (BioClim Wetlands) is set to convene from September 26th to 28th, 2023, in Bonn, Germany, under the theme of “Riverine and Coastal Wetlands: Guardians of Biodiversity and Climate.”


BioClim Wetlands will be jointly hosted by the German Federal Agency for Nature Conservation (BfN) and the European Network of Heads of Nature Conservation Agencies (ENCA), in collaboration with the Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research (UFZ) / German Centre for Integrative Biodiversity Research (iDiv), as well as adelphi. BioClim Wetlands will serve as a dynamic intersection for researchers, policymakers, and practitioners to share knowledge, insights, and solutions, working collectively to advance the preservation and restoration of riverine and coastal wetlands across Europe. This gathering of European experts seeks to unravel strategies for bolstering the adaptive capacity of wetland ecosystems, optimizing their climate-related services, and charting pathways for a comprehensive restoration.
