Biodiversity Revisited is a collaborative thought leadership process to co-produce a new, integrated five-year research agenda to effectively sustain life on Earth. As part of the Biodiversity Revisited initiative, the Boston Biodiversity Talks took place in May 2019 at the Frederick S. Pardee School of Global Studies at Boston University, USA, to begin exploring fresh thinking around biodiversity.
Here, Cyrie Sendashonga, Global Director of the Policy and Programme Group at the IUCN, shares her thoughts on how history has been repeating itself in biodiversity conservation, and why effective global governance must make sure it is an inclusive process for lasting success.
Biodiversity Revisited is an initiative of the Luc Hoffmann Institute, in collaboration with ETH Zürich, Future Earth, University of Cambridge Conservation Research Institute, University College London Centre for Biodiversity and Environment Research and WWF. The initiative exists thanks to generous funding from the NOMIS Foundation, the MAVA Foundation and WWF International.
