The Community of Practice on Biodiversity and Public Health in Belgium

The Community of Practice on Biodiversity and Public Health in Belgium is a group of experts from a diversity of fields: natural and social scientists, policy-makers, practitioners and other stakeholders. The Community of Practice aims to:

  • Build a strong network and stimulate capacity building          
  • Produce an overview of the current state of Belgian knowledge regarding Biodiversity and Public Health            
  • Respond to the demands of policy makers and stakeholders regarding Biodiversity and Public Health expertise at a Belgian level, as well as the international level; in the context of the establishment of the Intergovernmental Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES).

The Community of Practice was created following the 2011 Belgian Biodiversity Platform conference on Public Health which took place on November 30, 2011 in Brussels. The event gathered around 80 experts.
