Why this Conference?
The Climate Change-Biodiversity report of the IPPC (April, 2002) highlights that changing land use and land cover, soil and water/air pollution, diversion of water to intensively managed ecosystems and urban systems, habitat fragmentation, selective exploitation of species, the introduction of non-active species and stratospheric ozone depletion are the consequences of human activities. It is now well recognized that these activities are affecting the biodiversity. All these anthropogenic changes have resulted from the efforts of human being to make their existence more comfortable. The current rate of exploitation of natural resources is so high, that an urgent need is being felt to rethink and re-frame the policies of socio-economic development. The changes resulting from the developmental initiatives have altered the face of the Mother Earth.
The seventh Millennium Development Goal is most specifically focused on biodiversity related issues, and is essential to the fulfilment of this international commitment by the year 2015. The triangular relationship between development, biodiversity and climate change is complex in nature and through this attempt, emerging issues and challenges will be identified and discussed…
