On 22 May, the UN International Day for Biological Diversity, many commemorative ceremonies will be held all over the world to increase awareness and understanding of biodiversity issues.
This symposium will serve as an opportunity to raise awareness of biodiversity through presentations and discussions on the main theme of biodiversity’s role in recovery from disasters. The symposium will also recognize the May 2013 establishment of the Sanriku Reconstruction National Park in Japan, and the first Asia Parks Congress, to be held in Sendai, Japan in November 2013.
