Balancing Science, Conservation, and Society!
Science based conservation will enable informed society towards quality of life. Because much of the biodiversity and human population densities are located in the tropics, tropical biology and conservation need to align these three pillars (science, conservation and society) towards sustainability. The world is fast changing so is the escalation of challenges to ensure secured future, specifically where the deforestation and other form of habitat loss threaten the biodiversity. Therefore, the ATBC 2023 aims to focus on the balance of science as provider of evidence-based direction, conservation as a reflection of national priorities and compassion, and society as a driver of cause and beneficiary of these intrinsic relationships. ATBC 2023 will bring together the champions and disciples alike of these three key areas, and work towards deterministic pathways for balanced approach, also keeping up with the post 2020 Global Biodiversity Framework.
