    Biodiversity and its potential for economic development

    17.01.2023

    Online

    Virtual Coffee Break

    Indonesia is one of the biologically most resource-rich countries on earth.

Many biota are now threatened with extinction. At the G20 Summit in Bali, the country pledged to halt and reverse biodiversity loss. This obligation harbors hope for free research that can work towards good, mutual understanding and a balance of interests between those involved – especially science, politics and businesses.
