Botanists of the Twenty-first Century: Roles, Challenges and Opportunities, Room IV, UNESCO Headquarters, Paris, France

Aims of the Conference

The aim of the conference is to develop forward-looking perspectives for the botanical profession in the twenty-first century. The conference will provide a platform for exchange and dialogue to:

* Take stock of global, regional and national issues and challenges that botany can contribute to mitigating;

* Review the state of the art for the study and practice of botany; and

* Identify actionable elements for re-orienting the discipline to make the essential innovative scientific and technological contributions needed for current and future generations.

The conference will focus on tropical and temperate botanical issues, identifying skills to be maintained or developed and training needs. It will also define ways to interact with other disciplines and improve communication with the general public and policy-makers.

The conference will bring together participants from many regions of the world with a particular interest in the plant kingdom. Participants will include representatives from various sectors, including education, science, academia, policy, NGOs, communities and business, as well as development partners. Simultaneous translation in English and French will be provided.

Upcoming Events

Registration for GLF Accra is now open

This calendar is based on information provided by COMIFAC and the Franco-German support office is considered a complementary event schedule to the official calendar posted on COMIFAC's website. (http://www.comifac.org/events). It offers a broad overview of international and regional events that are directly linked to CBFP's objectives: major conferences and meetings, workshops and training sessions and other activities scheduled by CBFP Facilitation and its member organisations. 

Our choice is by no means exhaustive and depends largely on our partners' notice. Every partner organisation is thus welcome to contribute to a rich variety of posted events and to share its schedule with CBFP's Facilitation and the other members! We may also, upon request, forward your input to the COMIFAC webmaster.
