IUBS possesses core strengths in integrative biology that contribute to better understanding of life and its diversity. In this context, IUBS has been actively partnering with the "Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD)" since 1998. A specific example of its active role is in the organization of meetings of “Science for Biodiversity Forum” at the CBD, framing policies with scientific information for the attainment of the goals of the conventions. IUBS supplements these core strengths by integrating information from other areas of biology, and from the physical sciences and humanities, to help solve major environmental problems.

The resposiblities of content design and creation, organization of the Forums for IUBS, and representing IUBS in all the activities of the Forum have been taken care by Dr. Lily Rodriguez.
