RSV Members’ Forum: Biodiversity Conservation and Recovery

Developing a consensus position, with recommendations for further work and effective investment towards the goals of Biodiversity 2037 across the sectors.

This is a one-day workshop. We will be hearing from subject matter leaders from four different sectors on how their domain of experience, expertise and responsibility is reflected in the task before us. We anticipate presentations of no longer than about 10-15 minutes from each RSV Fellow, spaced throughout the day according to the task at hand, followed by room and panel discussions.

There will be breaks throughout the day to conserve our energies and gather our thoughts.

This forum will feature deliberative components to help our team develop a draft position paper for the Royal Society of Victoria, with recommendations for further work across the industry, government, academic and community sectors and developing effective investment strategies to help Victorians meet the goals of Biodiversity 2037.
