- Many fauna and flora species on earth play important roles in ecosystem functioning and services but conventional conservation would not achieve the maximum benefits that these species could potentially provide. With opportunities and markets created by the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and impact investments along with increasing available technologies, there are potential solutions for biodiversity conservation but Innovation Solutions are needed to make utmost use of technologies and to generate maximum yet sustainable benefits for biodiversity conservation and local livelihood improvement. Can we do that? Join us on 20 April 2019. We can accept 4 more teams (2-3 members each). Small prizes for the winning teams will be provided.
