Celebration of the International Day of Biodiversity 2008
Biodiversity and Agriculture - 22 May 2008
Agriculture is a key example of how human activities have profound impacts on the ecosystems of our planet. This year’s theme for the International Day for Biological Diversity (IBD), “Biodiversity and Agriculture,” seeks to highlight the importance of sustainable agriculture not only to preserve biodiversity, but also to ensure that we will be able to feed the world, maintain agricultural livelihoods, and enhance human well being into the 21st century and beyond.
Different activities will be organised in Belgium to commemorate this day. The CBD National Focal Point will issue a press release compilling the list of the events and gather all relevant information on the CHM website.
A major debate on the theme 'No Agriculture without Biodiversity' will be organised during the "Foire de Libramont" on Saturday 26 July (PM).
