Biodiversity conference "FACT-B" May 30th in Vancouver [fr]
The French Ameri-Can Climate Talks on Biodiversity (FACT-B), a series of conference on biodiversity, made a stop in Vancouver on May 30th. Panelists discussed the impact of climate change on the forests from the perspectives of France and Canada.
The goal of FACT-B is twofold: to raise public awareness in France, the United States, and Canada, as well as to reinforce exchanges between scientists and experts on biodiversity issues.
Following the success of the French Ameri-Can Climate TalkS (FACTS) created in the lead-up to COP21 and on the series dedicated to oceans (FACT-O), the Embassies of France in the United States and Canada launched FACT-B in 2019.
Held at UBC Robson Square in Vancouver, the conference featured a variety of panelists from France with Jean-François Silvain and Anne Larigauderie, and Canada, with Valerie Langer and Jessica Dempsey.
Gender equality is a priority for France. The conference’s panel was made of five women and one man.
