The eighth Trondheim Conference on Biodiversity will focus on the interlinkages between biodiversity and agriculture to develop food systems for a sustainable future, an essential discussion towards reaching the Aichi Biodiversity Targets and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Participants will consider aspects of the interlinkages, including: the potential pathways for sustainable intensification in agriculture and its impacts on biodiversity and ecosystem services; the policies, institutional arrangements, priorities and trade-offs in the biodiversity and agriculture sectors; the impacts of climate change in conserving biodiversity while satisfying food demand; and profiling biodiversity-friendly practices for producers and consumers. The outcome of the discussions will, among other things, inform the high-level segment of the 13th Conference of the Parties to the CBD (COP13), which is to take place in December 2016 in Mexico.

Hosted by the Norwegian Government, in partnership with the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD), the Food and Agriculture Organization of the UN (FAO), the Global Environment Facility (GEF), the UN Development Programme (UNDP), the UN Environment Programme (UNEP), the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) and the World Bank, the Conference aims to engage some 350 experts from governments, including from the environment and agricultural sectors, relevant UN agencies, and international and non-governmental organizations.
