At Kew, scientists and policymakers will gather for this, the second international conference of its kind. An annual review of the major issues affecting plant diversity and abundance, Kew's State of the World’s Plants report will provide data on important indicators to show how plants are faring and how this is changing over time.
As well as revealing the current status, the report includes horizon scanning to identify important and emerging issues, including research and knowledge gaps. The two-day symposium offers a platform to discuss issues raised in the report and to engage the scientific community, policymakers and public alike.
This year’s State of the World’s Plants will have a special focus on Madagascar – exploring the country’s unique biodiversity and examining how we can tackle threats to it.
