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 on 26th–28th September 2023 in Bonn, Germany 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 European Conference is hosted jointly by BfN and the European Network of Heads of Nature Conservation Agencies (ENCA), in cooperation with the Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research (UFZ) / German Centre for Integrative Biodiversity Research (iDiv) and adelphi. It contributes to the implementation of the Ramsar Convention on Wetlands. Registration is now open via the conference website (Link below).
