Topics addressed include:

  • the importance of local, regional and global networks for cooperation in conservation
  • South Africa’s progressive approach to achieve Aichi Targets
  • how the behaviour of seabirds should inform internationally coordinated protection measures on the high seas
  • and various other efforts across the world to promote ecosystem and human resilience against a constantly changing world
