Welcome to BiodiverCities 2010

September 10, 2010

To coincide with the International Year of Biodiversity, the Urban Protected Areas Network organized an international conference on the relationship between Cities and Nature, focusing on the complexities of- and the strategies for sustainably managing protected areas in urban environments, both North and South.

The final program of the event is available in both English and French.

Summaries of the accepted academic papers are available for download here.

PowerPoint presentations from the Urban Protected Area Round Tables, Thematic Workshops and Field Visit are also available for download.

While full conference proceedings will be formally published in due course, a preliminary report of the event can be downloaded here.

In the meantime, thank you to everyone who contributed to make this event a success, and please don’t hesitate to contact the conference secretariat with any questions or queries about the event.

Kind Regards,

The BiodiverCities Organising Committee
