International Conference on Biodiversity, Ecology and Conservation of Marine Ecosystems 2015 (BECoME 2015)

In 2015, the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region will implement the international Convention on Biological Diversity and its Biodiversity Strategy and Action Plan with a view to fostering the conservation of biological diversity, their sustainable use and the fair utilization of genetic resources.  Given the rich marine biodiversity and precious fisheries resources in Hong Kong waters, scientific research on the Biodiversity, Ecology and Conservation of Marine Ecosystems (BECoME) is highly essential to Hong Kong and the South China region.  To enhance the capacity building in this research area, 25 local marine scientists have conjointly established the joint universities consortium called BECoME since January 2013. The BECoME 2015 Conference will bring in internationally renowned scientists and regional experts to Hong Kong where they will share their knowledge and expertise on the latest development in the field with our local experts and environmental practitioners from academia, government, NGOs and private sector.  We are looking forward to welcoming you to join the BECoME 2015 Conference.
