Quebec RE3 Conference to Feature Plenary Panel of High Level Global Environmental Leaders

UN Decade of Restoration: Responding to climate destabilization and wetland/biodiversity loss

This Plenary Panel convenes high level global leaders on wetlands, biodiversity, restoration and climate change for a facilitated and dynamic discussion regarding the role of ecological restoration and wetlands in responding to the dual challenges of climate destabilization and biodiversity loss, as well as to help amplify the awareness of the role of wetlands and ecological restoration in responding to these global challenges. Celebrating the launch of the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration 2021-2030 and the themes of the RE3 Conference, this high-profile event promises to enlighten and inspire. Presenters include:
  • Elisabeth Mrema, Executive Secretary, Convention on Biological Diversity
  • Dianna Kopansky, UNEP, Coordinator for the Global Peatlands Initiative
  • Jane Madgwick, CEO of Wetlands International
  • Brendan Mackey, IPCC, Director of the Griffith Climate Change Response Program, Australia
Immediately following the plenary panel we invite interested conference delegates to join a forum where small participatory groups will discuss the role of ecosystem restoration in the post-2020 agenda, especially in the context of both climate mitigation and biodiversity protection, and will develop recommendations on ecological solutions, including greater recognition of the critical role of wetlands and ecological restoration, to:
  • Accelerate achievement of sustainable development goals,
  • Conserve and restore biodiversity, and
  • Stabilize the planet’s climate.
Recommendations developed during this forum will be compiled and shared after the conference as a means for advancing ecologically-based responses and solutions to the global challenges of a rapidly destabilizing climate and unprecedented biodiversity losses.
