As the IUCN World Conservation Congress opens, four experts enlighten us on biodiversity, and on the major role played by its preservation in maintaining the equilibrium of our planet.
The protection of the ocean – climate – biodiversity nexus is at the core of the challenges that will be facing us in the future.
Biodiversity is the basis of a whole system of food production worldwide and is our sole response for the mitigation of climate change.
Marine biodiversity, even more poorly known, plays a particularly important role in these issues, and we know today that its preservation is at the heart of all potential solutions.

Françoise Gaill, Emeritus Director of Research CNRS, Vice-Chair of the Ocean and Climate Platform.
