Join us for the 5th European Conference on Biodiversity and Climate Change:

Riverine and coastal wetlands for biodiversity and climate - Linking science, policy and practice


We are pleased to announce that we have made it possible to participate virtually in all plenary sessions of the BioClim-Wetlands Conference.
Register now to receive all relevant links and conference materials!

Riverine and coastal wetlands are rich in nature and vital to humans. Their conservation, restoration and wise use offers sustainable and cost-effective solutions to protect biodiversity and to mitigate and adapt to the impacts of climate change, creating strong benefits for people's health, livelihoods and well-being.

The BioClim-Wetlands Conference will bring together European experts from science, policy and practice to discuss how to jointly advance the conservation and restoration of riverine and coastal wetlands in Europe. Together, we will exchange knowledge and experience on how to boost resilience of wetland biodiversity in the face of climate change, how to maximize their climate services and further co-benefits, how to scale up wetland restoration in practice and how to move forward in European wetland policy and governance.

The conference it held jointly by the German Federal Agency for Nature Conservation (BfN) and the European Network of Heads of Nature Conservation Agencies (ENCA), in co-operation with the Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research (UFZ) / German Centre for Integrative Biodiversity Research (iDiv) and adelphi. It contributes to the implementation of the Convention on Wetlands (Ramsar Convention).
