Biodiversity targets for the future
Date:12/7/2010

rm for Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES). Mr. Arienzo led the Brazilian delegation sent to Nagoya and served as its chief negotiator.

The participants will then discuss issues related to the interoperability of biodiversity information systems, new techniques for studying the biodiversity of microorganisms, and modeling tools employing the indicators, parameters, and metrics used in monitoring the conservation or loss of biodiversity. On the final day, the conference will turn its focus to the Atlantic Forest.

Four main subjects will be presented and debated during the following event symposia: National and International Interoperability Among Biodiversity Information Systems; Metagenomics as a Tool to Assess Micro-Biodiversity; Post-2010 Biodiversity Targets: Ecosystem and Evosystem Services; and Impacts of Local & Global Changes on the Atlantic Rainforest.

Fees to register on or before December 3, 2010 are, in Brazilian reals (R$), R$250 for professionals, professors, researchers, and postdoctoral scholars; R$150 for students.

Scientific importance of the conference

As was made clear during COP 10, the organizers of Getting Post-2010 Biodiversity Targets Right stress that neither the 2010 global targets for biodiversity nor the Brazilian biodiversity targets for 2010 have been met.

According to the organizers, the failure to meet the targets was partly due to the fact that significant reductions in biodiversity loss rates cannot be detected through the use of the scientific methods currently available. Another problem is that it can take decades, or even centuries, for the impact of biodiversity conservation measures to become evident.

It is also well known that the effects of most of the primary drivers of biodiversity lossland-use change, climate change, pollution, and invasive specieshave increased since the targets were established in 2001.

In view of this, the meeting
