  • Naaya Event 2016 Business and Biodiversity Forum

    Selon le rapport 2016 du Forum économique mondial sur les risques liés à la biodiversité,  la perte de biodiversité et de l'effondrement des écosystèmes sont parmi. Les 10 risques majeurs rencontrés par le secteur privé, en termes de leur impact potentiel. A la lumière d'un tel effondrement systémique il est possible, et dans le meilleur intérêt des entreprises, du gouvernement, de prendre en compte la valeur des services éco systémiques et la biodiversité dans les systèmes productifs. L'intégration de la biodiversité dans la planification et l'exploitation des secteurs productifs implique l'intégration de la conservation et l'utilisation durable de la biodiversité dans les plans d'affaires, au-delà des stratégies de responsabilité sociale des entreprises. Cette approche novatrice sera abordée à 2016 Forum d'Affaires et Biodiversité (B & BF 2016), qui aura lieu en parallèle au segment ministériel de haut niveau de la 13e Conférence des Parties à la Convention sur la diversité biologique (COP13-CBD) des Nations Unies.
