The workshop will bring together international experts working at the biodiversity and climate interface. The workshop participants will exchange on the most recent or ongoing developments concerning biodiversity and climate change interconnections from different perspectives e.g. different sectors, geographical regions, spatial scales etc. They will identify key issues and action needs in terms of science, policy and implementation, and will develop recommendations of how these action needs could be addressed in future.

Special focus will be put on such topics as barriers and trade-offs in approaches that simultaneously address biodiversity loss and climate change at the landscape level; role of participation and tools to ensure collaboration in the multifunctional landscapes; as well as unlocking funding to scale up synergies for biodiversity and climate.
