Word Biodiversity Day Special: The Biodiversity Brouhaha

It has been 30 years since the Convention on Biological Diversity was adopted at the Rio Summit and 20 since the Biological Diversity Act was enacted in India. Both aimed to conserve biological diversity, use it sustainably and ensure that the benefits arising from its use are shared fairly and equitably with the people who have protected the biodiversity. On the ground, both have not protected biodiversity. Down To Earth brings together a panel of experts to understand, question and discuss the problem.

Join us for the virtual discussion this Friday – all are welcome.
