The 4th Science for Biodiversity Forum was held on 23-24 November 2018 in Sharm el-Sheikh,  Arab Republic of Egypt, at CBD COP 14 (Conference of the Parties of the Convention on Biological Diversity). 165 participants representing science, policy and civil society registered. The Forum was organized by the International Union of Biological Sciences, the European Commission, with support from EKLIPSE, the EU science-policy interface mechanism on biodiversity and ecosystem services, the Inter-American Institute for Global Change Research, and the Secretariat of the Convention on Biological Diversity.

The objective of this Science-Policy dialogue would be to bring together and engage scientists and policy makers in a transparent dialogue, to recommend how to bring the post-2020 process forward. It can open new pathways to accelerate implementation of nature-based solutions for nature, people and the economy across different sectors, and on engaging wider parts of the society.
